Basics Edit

Grenada is an island country consisting of Grenada itself and six smaller islands in the southeastern Caribbean. It's located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela, and southwest of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. About 110,000 inhabitants live on 348.5 km2 area.

Like on many Caribbean islands there are these two usual providers:

  • Digicel Grenada
  • Flow (by Cable & Wireless)

Flow is the incumbent provider and Digicel came to the Caribbean 2001-6 to end this monopoly and has since become market leader in Grenada. Good coverage is on the main island and around.

Digicel operates on European 900 MHz and 1800 Mhz for 2G/GSM and 2100 MHz for 3G/HSPA+, while Flow uses US bands on 850 MHz for 2G/GSM and 850 MHz and 1900 MHz fro 3G/HSPA+. There is no 4G/LTE yet, but both providers have marketed their 3G/HSPA+ as "4G".

Prices are given in East Caribbean dollar (EC$) that is fixed to the US$: US$1 = EC$2.70. Taxes are included.

Digicel Edit

Digicel

Digicel started in 2003 to challenge the monopoly of Lime that is called now Flow. Their network is generally on par with Flow, but like Flow Digicel markets 3G/HSPA+ as "4G" (for frequencies see Basics chapter): coverage map. In Grenada they have surpassed Flow in market shares now.
