Prime Minister Mark Phillips on Friday witnessed the launch of newly-licenced telecommunications company, Green Gibraltar Inc. and a demonstration of its service capabilities via a test unit at Rockstone Village, Region 10.
During his feature remarks the Prime Minister Phillips reaffirmed Government’s commitment to creating and strengthening partnerships in the field of telecommunications to ensure that people across Guyana are digitally connected.
Phillips, who has ministerial portfolio for Guyana’s telecommunications sector, explained that the company’s license was granted March this year, and applauded the entity for its commitment and hard work to hinterland broadband access.
“I want to thank all the members of the team and the supporting companies for being here and having this demonstration, working with the people of Rockstone, who are the first beneficiaries of Green Gibraltar Inc. in Guyana. As Prime Minister, who also has ministerial responsibility for ICT connectivity, I’m honoured to be here as part of this demonstration.”
The telecommunications company will test its internet connectivity for 90 days free of charge in the community of Rockstone where residents will be able to access several services via the internet.
