Charlestown, Nevis (Friday, November 16, 2012)–Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry met with Caribbean Cable Communications (CCC) President, Mr. Lee Bertman on Thursday at his Bath Hotel office, to discuss an upgrade in Internet and cable services for the island of Nevis.
The two gentlemen, who have known each other for over 25 years, agreed that Nevis needs to advance with technology, and Bertman said plans are in the works to making it happen, with the guidance of Premier Parry and the Nevis Reformation Party-led Nevis Island Administration.
“We have been having discussions about Caribbean Cable, and today we are reading from the same book and singing the same song, as we are looking to get broad-band and a total wired Nevis for the benefit of the residents,” said the Premier.
The Hon. Joseph Parry said that this modern upgraded service would be very beneficial for businesspersons and young people interested in Internet services.
A candid Lee Bertman told the Department of Information, that he has had some differences with the Premier in the past, but those differences have all been completely resolved.
“CCC is making major changes on Nevis, including multi-million dollar investments on Internet services, and we will also launch digital television soon on Nevis,” Bertman said.
“I am very pleased to be bringing to Nevis the best possible service in the Caribbean, and I am very happy to do this with the support of the Premier,” concluded Mr. Bertman.
