We are pleased to announce that Bluewave and its fixed wireless solutions partner, Mimosa received the award for “Connecting the Unconnected” at the inaugural 2018 CANTO Innovation Awards. Bluewave is the island's newest internet service provider (ISP) and provides affordable, reliable, high- speed internet to residents and businesses in Bermuda.
Launched in 2017, Bluewave, a product of TeleBermuda International, selected Mimosa technology for its large-scale, high-speed network using long range tower deployments and Mimosa’s signature MicroPoP architecture.
Nick Faries, Bluewave CEO, said, "Bluewave is honored that our effort to bring reliable, high-speed internet to residents and businesses in Bermuda has been recognized by CANTO 2018. Partnering
with Mimosa has enabled us to usher in much-needed competition, system reliability and value for money that is benefiting the Bermudian community. We hope that our business and network model will inspire other islands to overcome their connectivity challenges, so they may be able to leverage the numerous benefits associated with wireless technology.
“We are grateful for the recognition from CANTO, and excited to see Bluewave’s efforts in Bermuda serve as a model for other CANTO members in the Caribbean and the Americas who may be struggling with similar connectivity challenges,” said John Colvin, Mimosa SVP of Global Field Operations. “We look forward to partnering with Bluewave as they continue to set the bar for exceptional offerings.”
