Antigua and Barbuda's telecommunications landscape presents both unique challenges and solutions due to its geographical composition and population distribution. Being a two-island nation in the Caribbean, it faces geographical challenges, particularly in providing consistent telecommunications coverage across both islands. The population, although small, is dispersed across the two islands, with a concentration in urban areas such as St John's. The country has leveraged distinctive infrastructure solutions to maintain an adequate telecommunications network. It has adopted innovations such as underwater fibre-optic cables to connect the offshore islands and rural areas to the main network. These implementations have ensured the digital inclusion of almost the entire population, even though the challenging geographical landscape posits a significant hurdle to widespread connectivity.
