SAT Telecoms today officially introduced its new triple-play digital service that will encompass television, internet and telephone.
The over $7-million milestone achievement will replace the company’s existing analog service.
CEO of SAT Marlon Alexander said the move will definitely be a notable addition to the upward movement of the telecommunications sector on the island.
Speaking on the achievements of the company at a press conference today, Alexander said that despite stiff competition SAT has survived long past what most projected to be its lifetime.
“We’re here. We’re here to stay. It’s how you run your company,” Alexander said.
The move from analog to digital is expected to be completed by the end of February 2011, and existing customers of the standard television service will not see a price increase. “Not now and not in the near or medium future,” Alexander said.
Internet service from SAT is available immediately with five different speeds. The telephones service, which will be landline only, will come on stream shortly.
“Customers can have all three services for under $100,” the company’s CEO said, adding that this is determined by the combination and level of services selected.
“I am pleased to say the introduction of these new digital services represents a 40 percent reduction in the price of telecommunications services currently available on the island,” he noted.
SAT will not reveal its new pricing structure until the official launch of its digital service on Wednesday when it marks its 10th anniversary.
