That is right. Carib Gamer getting a taste of fast broadband speeds. Right now they have been upgrading certain areas to the new speeds. Now as gamers we embrace faster speeds. Lag is the devil and we don’t want to go back in sin. So Lime have been rolling out this new service to it’s customers and as you can see this been a long time coming. I was really impressed with the service given to us to get this done at our homes. Most times you would have some IT person who isn’t concerned with his job but only concerned for getting a paycheck. Yet they went out of their way to get us up and running. Nuff respect for that.
Now as you must be wondering “when will I get these speeds?” Well I think it is based on location right now and I think most are enjoying this new found speed as a great benefit for streaming and gaming. Here is the info from their site http://www.lime.com/vg/personal/internet/plans-british-virgin-islands
