Apart from the launch of the Christmas campaign, LIME introduced 4G to the cool town of Mandeville recently.

Mandeville, the commercial hub of central Jamaica, has recently experienced the Superfast LIME 4G HSPA+ mobile Internet speed. With on-the-go connectivity of up to 21MB per second, residents in and around the booming university town can now enjoy a more powerful Internet experience.

LIME's chief technology and information officer, Walter Brown, expressed: "We are very delighted to accelerate Mandeville - and more broadly, Manchester - along the mobile Internet highway. These enhanced speeds will deliver a significant benefit to the way people live, work, study and do business in this part of Jamaica, renowned for its steady improvement in quality of life. Upgrade Mandeville will add to that."

At the same time, subscribers in neighbouring Clarendon, the Corporate Area and parts of St Thomas have been feeling the vastly improved experience as LIME's US$79-million (J$8.8-billion) Mobile Upgrade and Expansion Project stretches into more communities across Jamaica.

The company also kicked off its Christmas promotion recently.

According to Carlo Redwood, vice-president of marketing at LIME, the company's 'Win Like an MVP' Christmas promotion will see 10 weekly winners of US$1,000 cash each, with all entrants standing a chance to win the Big Apple trip valued at more than US$10,000.
