Low Cost Business Plan
& Expands Single Line Business Plan Requirements

New plan makes local calling plans more affordable for businesses

Tortola, British Virgin Islands - Cable & Wireless, provider of the broadest range of communications in the Caribbean region, today launched a new calling plan for small businesses in the BVI with the introduction of "Lite" Plan, a new calling plan geared to fit the needs of the very small business customers. Cable & Wireless also announced today a significant change to the Single Line Unlimited Business Plan.

"After listening to our customers in the business sector and coordinating with the BVI Government, Cable & Wireless is pleased to announce these two new enhancements in our calling plans for businesses," explained Vance Lewis, CE Cable & Wireless. "With today's announcement, business customers can subscribe to calling plans that are more affordable and fits their calling needs at the same time."

Effective immediately, Cable & Wireless has extended the Single Line Unlimited Business Plan by increasing the number of eligible lines from 2 to 4.

Also effective immediately, Cable & Wireless is introducing the new "Lite" Plan that offers a rental rate of US$20 per month, per line, with a maximum of two lines being eligible for this plan. Customers with PABX or Key System Lines will not be eligible.

Under the new Lite Plan, decreases in international direct dialed calls will remain the same with up to 68% savings and rates for local calls are 15 cents per minute. Whenever the combined usage of local and international calls exceeds $40, the full monthly rental rate of $40 will be charged, for that line.

The new plans are part of Cable & Wireless' rebalance rates, introduced December 1, 2005. Before rebalancing, international calling subsidized the provision of local phone service in the BVI.

Since the new rates and home plans were announced in November 2005, 70% of all Cable & Wireless residential customers have signed up for a plan. "The take-up of plans continues to exceed expectations to day," Mr. Lewis, said, "with more than 60% of residential customers selecting the $50 per month unlimited plan." Residential customers have a choice of paying a flat rate of $50 per month for unlimited fixed-to-fixed local calls, or plans featuring a bundle of free minutes of 500 and 800 per month each and paying 5 cents per minute for minutes exceeding the free minutes.

Single line business customers with a maximum of four lines can pay $100 per month per line for unlimited fixed-to-fixed local calls.

International direct dial rates were reduced by as much as 68 percent, with call rates to the United States, United Kingdom and Canada now as low as 45c per minute.
