LIME now offering prepaid internet
LIME Jamaica has added to its mobile broadband offerings a USB modem that allows wireless connection via laptops on a prepaid 'pay-as-you-go' plan.

Prepaid Mobile Internet is also available to smartphones users.

Subscriptions to the plan range from $300 to $3,500.

There are no geographical limitations, inside Jamaica, for the service.

"With today's active lifestyles, there is a heavy demand for Internet connectivity on the go, and now LIME's customers can enjoy the convenience of wireless Internet service with the flexibility of a prepaid option," said Geoff Houston, LIME managing director for Jamaica and Cayman, in a company-issued statement.

"The beauty of this new service is the versatility and convenience. If a customer from Kingston is going to be on the north coast for a weekend, they can get service for two or three days and be able to log on to the internet from their laptop while they're sitting on the beach."

The three packages cover a one-day option for $300, seven days for $1,250, and 30 days for $3,500.

A special introductory offer of $1,500 on the one-month subscription ends April 30.
