    Licence application: Gilbert ‘Artie” Darrell, CEO of Horizon Telecommunications


Horizon Communications has applied for a regulatory licence to operate a new high-speed wireless 4G LTE solution for homes and businesses in Bermuda.

It was announced in October that a moratorium on new telecommunications licences was being lifted.

The Regulatory Authority of Bermuda opened up a licensing period for new ICOL applications on January 27.

Horizon, a Bermudian-owned telecommunication company, said it has applied for a regulatory licence to operate a new high-speed wireless 4G LTE solution for homes and businesses in Bermuda.

Gilbert “Artie” Darrell, chief executive officer of Horizon Communications, said: “We look forward to working with the RA to enter the Bermuda market to offer more choice to consumers and businesses for high-speed internet and telecommunications services.

“With our experienced team, financial backing from local and international investors, next generation LTE technology, and dedication to customer service excellence, Horizon will be an attractive alternative provider for consumers and businesses in Bermuda.

“We appreciate the efforts of the Minister of Home Affairs, the RA, and the Government to establish a robust framework for evaluating new entrants like Horizon. In our opinion, opening the door to a new Bermuda company will be a positive development for the entire market.”

Horizon Communications has plans to deploy wireless internet service across the island, providing more choice for consumers and creating jobs for approximately 30 Bermudians in the first two years, pending regulatory approval.
