TSTT Offers Lower Internet Rates with Higher Speeds

ComputersOn the heels of Flow cable announcing increased internet speeds for lower rates we have TSTT launching Blinkbroadband (www.blinkbroadband.tt).

Currently, TSTT’s residential Dial-Up Unlimited package is $345.00 TT and the DSL 256k package is $460.00 TT, but with TSTT’s Blinkbroadband the residential rates are:

Speed / Cost in TT dollars

256k —— $79.00
512k ——- $149.00
1MB ——- $229.00
2MB ——- $349.00
Up to 10MB —— $699.00


Before you think this is such a great deal, in Denver people pay around $37.00 US for 7MB.

I also doubt TSTT’s customer service would improve any time soon.

TSTT setting a new benchmark for broadband access

Trinidad – On October 1st, TSTT entered the final phase of its multi-million dollar broadband infrastructure upgrade that will see the company ramp up its customer broadband capacity to over 100,000 ports within a 4-month period. The project will ultimately deliver broadband access speeds of up to 10Mbps and reach every Exchange in Trinidad and Tobago. Trevor Deane TSTT’s Executive Vice President Broadband Services says that with the upgrade, TSTT will be able to extend the distance limitations that were a feature of its current High-Speed Internet offering. “We have invested in ‘future proof’ technologies that are versatile enough to support current and emerging technologies. Modernising our infrastructure and completing our Metro Ethernet fibre distribution network will mean the sky is the limit for business and residential users.”

Deane says the upgrade has enabled TSTT to quickly reach critical mass and customers will soon see a value proposition that will be hard to resist. “The final numbers are still being crunched but we are going after an extremely competitive price point with rates for unlimited monthly broadband access starting as low as $79 a month! This is Broadband redefined.”

Deane says TSTT is very excited about these developments. “Broadband access is the single most important growth area in the communications industry because of the transformative power it has in business and social spheres.” He explains that TSTT is laying the ground work for customers to use broadband access for entertainment, research and education, communication, buying and selling, accessing Government services, health care and much more.

Deane is confident that TSTT’s macro broadband initiative will single-handedly give Trinidad and Tobago a quantum leap forward. “While we have placed a lot of emphasis on the wired network, we are simultaneously developing our wireless broadband coverage so there will be virtually universal affordable broadband access throughout Trinidad and Tobago, a feat that few anywhere else in the region can boast about.”

The service will be rolled out in three phases. Customers serviced off the West, San Juan and Diego Martin exchanges will be included in the first phase, while the second phase inclusive of four more exchanges is due to begin by mid November.

  1. this blink is the worst if the electricity is taken . the settings makes it change and the agents at tstt can’t even help re set it. they need to be trained

  2. I am currently a blink customer I had the 256 k package for 79.00 recently they called me and asked if I would like to upgrade to a 1 mb for 45 .00 more the only thing is I have to extend my contract to three years . i did take it so far its working fine.

  3. so long i applied for broad band internet since 2009.we are in 2010 and i still have not get it.what is going on that i have not gotten it as yet.you have not email nor call to tell me what night be the problem that i cannot get it.tstt u need competition bad.

  4. Hi applied for the blink internet service since june of LAST YEAR 2009, an they told me i could, withing two weeks, waw my phone is now cut because they said i need a land line for the service and i never got the service and i dont need the phone just the line. (number one network in Trinidad and Tobago)Point Fortin.

  5. I am sorry to say the 256k package is awaste of time. Videos cannot even work properly. So you are paying for a piece of the pie. The worst is they do not tell you the disadvantage even when you ask them everything is great. Then they tie you down to a 2yr contract, so when you get fustrated after they connection, you either pay them a wacking set of money to cut the service or you give them more money to enjoy a simple feature like internet video access. You all are taking advantage of the the computer illiterate

    I am sorry to say your package is a scam.

  6. I have applied for Blink Broadband since October of 2008 and we are in April 2010 and i Haven’t received any service from these people. This was the reason that i had gotten a landline and TSTT Agents are the WORST EVER.I keep calling TSTT every 2 weeks or once for the month and all they say is that the problem will be rectified and there is something wrong with the exchange.They have forwarded messages to technicians and they said the technicians would call me(They didn’t)to fix it and a whole lot of excuses and false promises.I am fed-up with this nonsense.Technicians at TSTT if you cant do the job there are people who can and give up you all job.
