A release from the mobile company stated that, “The telecommunications merger, which created the largest wireless carrier, digital voice and data network in North America, will offer costumers maximum convenience and flexibility, improved reliability, enhanced call quality, and the widest array of new and advanced services.”

But, what’s in store for Caribbean customers from this merger?

According to the release, Cingular intends to bring these benefits to its customers in the Caribbean in addition to continuing the services started by AT&T Wireless.

“The best is yet to come for wireless customers in the Caribbean. We are committed to giving consumers the coverage, the phones, the capabilities, and the call clarity they deserve,” said Jordan Roderick, executive vice president of Cingular’s International unit. “We are also committed to expanding the availability of our high-speed Third Generation services to the region’s ever-growing community of mobile data users.”

As a result of the merger, Cingular now serves former AT&T Wireless customers in Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent & the Grenadines and will now focus on sharing its services with Curacao, St. Kitts & Nevis, Anguilla, Jamaica, Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin, and St. Barth’s.
