BTC, in an effort to reach out to its business customers, organized a complimentary breakfast for invited guests on March 1. Present from BTC were CEO Geoff Huoston, Marlon Johnson – VP of Marketing and Communications, Gershan Major – VP of Channels and Marketing, and many others among BTC’s “Enterprise Team.” The breakfast was held Below Decks at Abaco Beach Resort.
Throughout the morning BTC executives encouraged the business customers present to socialize, network and get to know the members of BTC better. Various business owners and managers took the opportunity to ask questions about BTC’s current and future services.
After a brief welcome by Mr. Major and a video presentation about BTC’s continuing work by Mr. Johnson, BTC’s CEO stood up to greet the audience and take a few minutes to explain certain new features and services his company would be rolling out.
Mr. Huoston explained some of the challenges facing BTC, which includes the volume of data they face. Since launching the 4G data network, according to Mr. Huoston, there had been a nearly 29,000% increase in data consumption, equaling about 1 terabyte of data usage per day. He explained this puts enormous strain on the network but their engineers were constantly working on easing the burden.
A new LTE network is the next network to be launched in The Bahamas.
Mr. Huoston also spoke briefly about new service management and improvement plans.
After Mr. Huoston’s brief presentation and breakfast had been served, the Enterprise Team was introduced. It was explained that these were the people who would be responsible for taking the company to the next level in preparing for coming competition.
