Logic is the new name for WestTel in the Cayman Islands

Logic is the new name for WestTel
in Cayman.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of KeyTech
Ltd., the Logic brand builds on the solid foundations established since
WestTel’s inception in 2003, as a provider of innovative, high quality
communications solutions for business, government and residential customers in
the Cayman Islands.

As part of a group that has been providing
communications services for over a century, Logic is looking forward to its
next phase of growth.

“The economies that can be achieved between our business
and other group subsidiaries will mean better control of our collective cost
base, enhancing our ability to develop and deploy world class solutions in the
Cayman Islands. We also intend to take full advantage of the established
relationships that KeyTech have with global powerhouses such as Verizon”, said
Michael Edenholm, Logic’s Chief Executive Officer. Edenholm went on to say,

“These changes will strengthen our presence in Cayman and drive our ability to
deliver world class solutions with outstanding customer service.”

The changes have come about as a result of
Keytechs’ purchase, from WestStar TV, of outstanding shares in WestTel. KeyTech
has a rich history spanning more than a century in Bermuda, where the group
operates mobility, landline, ISP, IT Services, directory and cable TV businesses. 

Further demonstration of KeyTech’s rich
heritage and commitment to the markets which it serves, comes through its
recent deployment of the ‘Challenger’ undersea cable system, connecting Bermuda
with the US. Challenger is now a tangible national asset and is helping to
satisfy Bermudas’ continued requirements for high speed international
connectivity. The same expertise which ensured delivery of this substantial
project is now supporting the next phase of Logic’s growth in Cayman, which
includes deployment of the George Town phase of Logics’ fiber optic network.
For businesses within this key district, real connectivity choice is coming for
the very first time.

Let us explain !

Any George Town business currently using
fiber or copper services, even where those services are being provided by
different providers, may unwittingly be assuming the risks associated with
‘single points of failure’, as all services use the same underground trenches.
Therefore, in the event that the trench into a building is disrupted, it is
likely that all existing communication services, by all existing providers will
be affected.

Their multimillion dollar investment means
that Logics’ trenches and fiber optic cables will be entirely separate from
other providers, significantly reducing the operational risk associated with an
absence of connectivity to the outside world. This significant investment in
the fabric of Caymans’ infrastructure is already providing true diversity and
offers Logic customers real solutions to the ongoing challenges surrounding IT
network diversity and compliance, so critical in offshore jurisdictions. 

Lewie Hydes, Chief Operating Officer

“Following the outstanding success of our initial rollout, which now
provides service to key commercial and residential properties along West Bay
Road, we are excited by the challenge of deploying in George Town. The
deployment satisfies a real need for infrastructure diversity in the area and
will help us develop and deliver cutting edge, voice, data and hosted

In parallel with planning of the fiber roll
out, Logic is working on some exciting services to help businesses across the
island continue to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Working with their
sister organisations and suppliers, they will be building on their existing
Internet, data, MPLS, voice and cloud computing capabilities. Watch out for a
range of eye catching propositions for businesses and government departments of
all sizes.

Recognising the current economic situation
in the country, Mr. Hydes also commented, “We are also delighted that the
project will engage local expertise to deploy the system, ensuring that the
substantial revenues associated with the project, will remain within the local
economy, evidence of another way in which Logic is actively supporting the
community which it seeks to serve.“

The continued contribution of substantial
funds to youth and adult programmes at Kings Sports Centre is further
demonstration of the priority that Logic places on its role as a good corporate
citizen. As part of their re-branding project, Logic are also proud to announce
a new sponsorship agreement with the Cayman Rugby Football Union. As part of
this partnership Logic are now primary providers of all communication services
to the Union and the power behind an exciting new venture, Cayman Rugby TV
(www.caymanrugbytv.com). Logics’ high speed Internet services, installed at the
CRFU headquarters in South Sound, allow Cayman rugby fans all over the world to
check out streaming of games live from the ground plus an archive of previous
games, tournaments and interviews. With rugby a new addition to the Olympic
programme, Logic are proud to play their part in supporting our young players
and the next generation of Cayman Olympians.

So please look out for Logic in the coming
weeks. Their commitment to helping Cayman connect with the world continues and
you’ll be hearing more from them very soon. If you do have any concerns or
