Our Jamaica subsidiary Comtech Limited is the leader in both the paging and trunked radio market and is a major supplier of radio services to both private and government sectors in Jamaica. Comtechs TRS is an advanced wireless communications infrastructure which provides all user agencies with better coverage, clarity and interoperability (one large network consisting of several local area networks) while providing both emergency and non-emergency services to the Government agencies in Jamaica.During the last thirteen years Open Telecom has acquired extensive expertise in both satellite and terrestrial base communications has rolled out and maintained key installations throughout the Caribbean.
