This has been made possible through the Universal Service Fund (USF), an agency of the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology, which carried out the installation at the first in a series of public sites which will be provided with broadband Internet accessibility. Portfolio Minister, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley said he anticipates that the USF will continue to take Jamaica closer to the Government’s goal of a knowledge-based fully-digital society. “We envision Jamaica as the technological hub of the Caribbean and, therefore, our interactions with the technology must extend beyond email, Facebook and Snapchat. For us to compete, there has to be a greater production of technology to move away from being mere consumers of technology to being developers,” he said.
