Guadeloupe Communication
 
 
 

General

Both the telecommunications sector and the electricity sector are monopolised by the French government through state-owned enterprise.

RFO is the main broadcasting company in Guadeloupe and is a public service. Other TV stations are Canal10, La Una Guadeloupe and Télê Guadeloupe. Radio Caraibes International is the local radio station and is privately operated, as is NRJ Antilles. RFO Guadeloupe, a public broadcaster, also operates.

Competition among internet providers is not yet widespread in Guadeloupe, and the market is divided between France Telecom and Outre-mer Online. ADSL is only just under development in urban areas, and tariffs are extremely high in comparison with the mainland.
