Mio, a fast growing provider of broadband mobile communication services in the Caribbean Islands, has announced that it will soon be launching mobile voice, broadband Internet access and WiMax services in Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao.

Mio says that it will be the first in the Caribbean to offer affordable unlimited wireless broadband Internet access and voice plans that include voicemail and unlimited texting.

In addition, Mio will also offer the fastest wireless Internet connectivity available through its wireless broadband service. WiMax, Mio's business offering, primarily targets the growing needs of the business and corporate community through powerful broadband Internet connectivity in the office. The company also offers a full range of data, voice and broadband and products for consumers.

The "iNET" brand, Mio's EV-DO high speed Internet, provides mobile users with always-on access to email and the Internet anywhere in the Caribbean Islands where Mio has coverage. EV-DO also enables faster data transfer rates. This allows the user to be connected wherever they are -- providing not only for the use of email but for downloading large files, music, photos, spreadsheets, etc. Users can also work on a large variety of applications including Microsoft Office Suite. In addition, this technology allows rich web browsing and application usage.

WiMax offers businesses dedicated broadband IP for data and voice services. Mio's High Speed Wireless Broadband product is designed to meet the increasing Internet and broadband demands of its corporate customers with its speed, reliability, value, and the fact that it is completely wireless with no time restrictions for unlimited usage. High Speed Wireless Broadband will further enable new IP (Internet Protocol) services such as static IP addresses, VoIP (Voice over IP), hosted and managed services, video on demand, video conferencing, web hosting, and many other services to be offered. Additionally, it does not require a landline as ADSL does.

Marc Dinee, VP of Sales and Marketing at the Mio Group, stated: "Mio is determined to meet the needs of the various segments in the Caribbean market and, in that vein, we will be unveiling a number of other new products and services targeting these segments over the next several months. We are very excited to introduce our offerings of mobile voice, data, and broadband services to consumers and businesses in these islands. Our services provide our customers with always-on connectivity and high quality reliable services."
