BubbleTone, the first blockchain-based ecosystem for telecom operators, and Horizon Communications, provider of high-speed LTE connectivity, announced their partnership. This agreement will at first be aimed at providing cheap mobile connectivity in Caribbean region because of increased tourist activity and demand for stable mobile connection.

Horizon agreed to use blockchain-based telecom platform in their operational area of Caribbean islands, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and in Central America. It will allow tourists from around the world to connect to the local mobile network at local rates without resorting to ridiculously-priced roaming. Current spotty coverage and unreasonably high roaming fees are a detriment to market development and they leave a significant tourist user base without reliable communication.

All these advancements are made possible by implementing new system by BubbleTone, which allows mobile service providers from around the globe to connect to each other and provide international service without roaming agreements and infrastructure modifications. It helps small and medium-sized mobile operators to evade this spendings while still providing coverage for maximum user base essentially for free, in terms of setting up international roaming.

Horizon plans to launch this technology first in Bermudas within 2018 and then expand to Caribbean and Central America over the next few years.
