TSTT has re-branded its mobile division to bmobile along with other Cable & Wireless companies in the Caribbean. Since then almost all the other Caribbean mobile divisions have been re-branded to LIME and now FLOW.
In 2007 they began launching data services (fixed wireless) on a CDMA network.
In March 2014 the company announced '4G' HSPA+ data services to all customers.
Part of its 5-year strategy, bmobile refreshed its brand and announced a launch of HD Voice over its 3G network as well as improved speeds over its existing HSPA+ network. Days later, on December 9, 2016, the company went live with its LTE network which, at the time of launch, was only available in Port of Spain, San Fernando and soon after, a few locations in Tobago. The network affords speeds of up to 75 Mbit/s down and 25 Mbit/s up on a 10 MHz wide carrier on LTE Band 2 (1900 MHz).
In order for bmobile to do an LTE rollout however, the company decommissioned its 2G GSM 1900 MHz network, making bmobile the second mobile operator in the entire Americas to decommission 2G GSM after AT&T did so on January 1, 2017.
