Montserrat is a British Overseas Territory located in the Lesser Antilles in the West
Indies. This Caribbean island is only about 10 miles long by 7 miles wide. A volcanic explosion in 1995 caused
about two-thirds of the population to flee. This was just a few years after Hurricane Hugo caused widespread damage
to the island and left nearly 90 percent of the island's residents homeless.
Volcanic activity continues to affect the island, primarily along its eastern side. A large exclusion zone exists
as a result of the volcano's potential. Because the volcano destroyed Montserrat's capital city of Plymouth, a
new town and port are being constructed on the island's northwest coast.
Though some of the estimated 8,000 refugees who fled the island have returned, not all have. As of July 2014 estimates,
Montserrat had a population of just 5,215 of its pre-eruption population of 12,000.
As you can imagine, losing an entire capital city, its airport and seaports, and two-thirds of its population has
affected Montserrat's economy. A lack of housing makes returning to Montserrat difficult for those who want to
return - with half of the small island deemed uninhabitable. There's also a lack of suitable land for the agriculture
sector to replant crops.
Telecommunications in Montserrat
According to CIA World Factbook, Montserrat had 3,000 main line telephones in use
as of 2012 and 4,000 mobile cellular phones during that same time period. Despite the island's difficulty because
of the volcano, its telecommunications system is characterized as modern and fully digitalized. Its combined tele
density for both fixed lines and mobile phones exceeds 100 per 100 people.
Montserrat is a landing point for a fiber optic submarine cable (East Caribbean Fiber System), which provides links
to other islands in the eastern Caribbean.
As of 2009, Montserrat had 1,200 Internet users.
The regulatory agency responsible for restructuring and integrating ICT (Telecommunications, Information and Communications
Technology) and broadcasting industries to form an "Info-Communications Sector" is the Montserrat Info-Communications
Authority (MICA). According to its website, MICA is charged with transforming Montserrat into "an intelligent
island with the necessary and sufficient socio-economic infrastructure to accelerate and sustain growth and development
of the economy."
How to Call Montserrat from Outside the Island
If you need to call someone in Montserrat, you will need to dial your country's international call prefix, a number
that allows you to dial outside of your own country. For example, if you're in the UK, you'd first dial 00, which
is the international call prefix for the UK.
Next, you'll need to dial Montserrat's country code, which is 1, followed by its single area/city code, which is
664. Finally, you'll dial the provided number for the person you are calling. Thus, from the UK., you'd dial: 00
1 664 + the provided number.
