Telecommunications in Barbados

Barbados is a small island nation in the Lesser Antilles. Measuring roughly 20 miles in length by 14 miles in width, Barbados is about 167 square miles. Barbados was first settled by the British in the early 1600s and gained independence in 1966. Up until the 1990s, the economy centered on sugar, molasses, and rum production. Today, tourism and manufacturing are the largest industries in Barbados.

Barbados is considered one of the World Bank's 76 "high-income economies." In terms of GDP per capita, Barbados is also considered the 53rd richest countries in the world.

As of July 2014 estimates, Barbados has a population of 289,680. The official language of Barbados is English.
The CIA World Factbook reveals that Barbados had 144,000 main lines in use in 2012 for a fixed phone line teledensity of about 50 main phones for every 100 people. As with many countries, a larger percentage of the population uses mobile cellular phones. In 2012, about 347,000 mobile cellular phones were in use for a mobile phone teledensity of about 125 mobile phones for every 100 people.

Barbados is served by an island-wide automatic telephone system. Barbados is a landing point for the ECFS (East Caribbean Fiber System) which connects to other islands in the region. It is also home to one satellite earth station and uses tropospheric scatter to Saint Lucia and Trinidad.

Cable & Wireless (LIME) holds a monopoly on the fixed line market, but the mobile market has some competition. The two main wireless telephone providers are Digicel and Cable & Wireless. In addition, a relatively new entrant in the Barbados telecommunications market, Columbus Communications, offers bundled cable television, Internet, and digital telephone services.

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and UNICEF consider Barbados "one of the most wired countries" in the world (per capita) with an estimated Internet usage rate of about 55 users for every 100 people. ASDL, frame relay, and high speed wireless Internet service are readily available from leading providers such as Telebarbados, Sunbeach Communications, CariAccess, CaribSurf, WiNet, TeleBarbados/, and Cable & Wireless.

Telecommunications Challenges in Barbados

Though Barbados has a long history as being the region's telecommunications leader (Barbados played a key role in telegraph communications in the 1800s) and a strong mobile subscriber base, challenges exist. Poor quality of service is a common complaint. In fact, a senior member of the House Assembly and former Attorney General, Dale Marshall was quoted in Barbados Today as saying, "I hate to say it, but the mobile telephone service in Barbados sucks. You can hardly make a telephone call on a mobile phone except you wait sometimes ten or 15 seconds to connect with the other person. You can hardly make a mobile phone call without dropouts…"

With just one fixed line provider and two wireless carriers, competition for subscribers is minimal with no incentive to improve quality of service. With Columbus Communications now in the mix, costs are expected to come down and service improve.

Conference Call Barbados Solution

Using International Conferencing Services in Barbados

One option to businesses and individuals in Barbados is to use an international conference calling service to host and participate in group calls with others around the world.

While it is possible to use a phone system with conferencing capabilities to speak with a group of individuals, conference calls with participants in other nations become problematic.

For example:
  • International long distance charges can be cost-prohibitive for group conference calls.

  • Toll free numbers are not universal; they only work for in-country callers.

  • Conference calls held over a poor quality network make it difficult for participants due to issues such as very marginal sound quality, dropouts, and disconnected calls.

By using an international conferencing service in Barbados, you can avoid these problems:

It doesn't matter if you are located in Barbados or have participants located there. Using an international conference call provider gives you access to low international conferencing rates as well as routing participants over a high quality telecommunications network so that network issues are no longer a problem.

Here's how it works
  • Simply activate an international conferencing account
  • Schedule your call with your international participants
  • Issue toll free or local access numbers specific to each participants' country including Barbados
  • Share the call details with your participants
  • At the global conference call's start time, all participants dial the toll free or local access number for their specific countries and enter the conference PIN number. (In some cases, you may want to use the "moderator dial out" feature for dial some participants).
  • Everyone is connected over a high quality telecommunications network and can speak to one another without dropouts, echoes, delays, or other issues.
  • You can record the international conference call as an MP3 file to share with participants afterward.
  • You pay only for the time you use, billed per person, per minute according to each country's international conferencing rates.

A pay-as-you-go Barbados conference call plan is a fantastic way to go. Not only is the quality much better and the rates extremely attractive, there are no long term contracts, no minimum usage requirements, no surprise fees.

Best of all, not only can you hold a Barbados conference call with participants in Barbados, you can have participants from all over the world join your meeting.
