High roaming bills for Caribbean travellers should be ending now that an agreement has been signed between CARICOM and the region’s two major telecommunications companies.

However, travellers will know how big that drop in the charges will be only through Cable & Wireless Communications and the Digicel Group’s big reveals in the coming days and weeks.

The relief for cellphone users is assured following the signing ceremony of The Declaration Of St George’s Towards The Reduction Of Intra-CARICOM Roaming Charges, which took place in Grenada yesterday with Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell insisting it was the first step in eliminating roaming charges within the CARICOM space.

Mitchell, the lead CARICOM Head of Government with responsibility for science and technology, was joined in that sentiment by Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, who also said data and information were the new oil driving the economy. (AC)
