Energy minister Phillip Paulwell says he wants the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) to enter the broadband Internet market.

Minister Paulwell described this as a win/win strategy for the company, saying it could recoup some of its loses from new competition. He says the existing JPS grid could also dramatically increase broadband access in several communities.

The minister says this would help to drive development and increase Jamaica's competitive edge in the market for investments. Mr Paulwell says the light and power company could provide high-speed Internet service similar to what is currently provided by Flow Jamaica.
