Cayman Islands - Communications (Telephone, Post, Internet, TV, Radio)

In keeping with the rest of the high standard of living, the Caymans have a state of the art telephone, satellite television and Internet system. The area code for the Caymans is 345. The Cayman Islands is ranked among the top ten countries in the world in per capita concentration of mobile phones. There are numerous public cyber cafes in George Town, and at least one on Little Cayman.

Cable & Wireless Caribbean is the local provider of phone and Internet service. The company offers mobile telephone service, high speed Internet access, voicemail and fax, toll-free 800 service, leased circuits, pre-paid calling cards, 'pay as you go' cellular service, many payphone and card phone locations around the islands, and a wide range of PBX equipment for small to very large businesses. New customers must pay a deposit or provide a letter of guarantee from a bank or credit union. Contact the company for residential or business account applications.

Post office hours are weekdays 8.30am-3.30pm and Saturday 8.30am-11.30am. The main branch is in downtown George Town and there are branch locations throughout the island, including one in the Seven Mile Beach strip. The main post office on Cayman Brac is in West End, and there is also a post office on Little Cayman. Stamps are widely available at grocery stores and most hotels. The stamps of the Caymans are respected by collectors worldwide.

There are four television stations in the Cayman Islands: CITN and its sister-station CTS, CAT and CATN/TV-30. The privately owned CITN (Cayman International Television Network) and CTS (Cayman Television Service) are free over-the-air stations. CITN/Cayman 27 offers 24-hour daily transmission of local, Caribbean and International news, along with U.S., Canadian, and British news and entertainment. CTS/Island 24 has evolved into a tourism information channel. CITN offers a 35-channel cable service of international programs, by subscription. CATN/TV-30 is a Christian broadcasting station and is run by the Cayman Islands Mission of the Seventh-day Adventists.

The government-owned Radio Cayman is now in its 23rd year of operation. Its programs are designed to meet the needs of education, religion, culture and entertainment. The station operates 24 hours, seven days per week, from George Town. Radio ICCI-FM, a non-commercial station, attracts a younger crowd with its 24-hour music format. Programming includes classical and popular music, community-oriented news, and religious programs.
