Let’s face it: Jamaicans are living in the always-on-always-connected era. That fact is clear in the phone-frenzy of both urbanites and rural dwellers whose busy fingers send hundreds of text messages each day. I’ve often marveled at this modern Jamaica, a society that in the eyes of those living decades past would be nothing short of science fiction. But how often we forget that today’s reality could have remained within the minds of dreamers. How often we forget the dreaded days when monopoly reigned within the telecoms industry.
