Commenting on the financial results, Frank Amaral, CEO of One said:

 

“The Company completed its island-wide FibreWire rollout, which along with other operational programs, produced important service quality improvements in our residential internet and TV products. We are happy to report service call volumes have declined and a corresponding increase in customer satisfaction scores since last year. All customers were provided free internet speed boosts as part of the network upgrades and overall customer feedback has been positive.

 

Work on our next generation FibreWire television product continues, and we are well underway with internal employee trials commencing before our commercial launch date in the Fall. We are assembling a pipeline of new product offerings for launch to both residential and business customers over the next six months. Our goals with these products are to provide innovative solutions for reoccurring customer pain-points, add new revenue lines and overall value to our product set with the corollary benefit of reducing customer churn.

 

With respect to the Company’s operations in the Cayman Islands, we remain bullish on the country’s key economic indicators, such as positive population growth, which should continue to benefit our results. We continue to invest and expand our fibre footprint on the island with more than 60% of homes passed in Grand Cayman.”
