Flag of Saint Kitts and Nevis

National Anthem


Saint Kitts and Nevis, officially the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis, also known as the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis, is a two-island country in the West Indies and the smallest sovereign state in the Commonwealth. The two islands comprise 261 km2 and around 52,000 inhabitants.

Like on many small Caribbean islands there are these two usual providers:

  • Flow (by Cable & Wireless)
  • Digicel St. Kitts and Nevis

A third provider called Chippie (by UTS Cariglobe) was disconnected and suspended in 2014.

Flow is the incumbent provider and Digicel came to the Caribbean 2001-6 to end this monopoly. In St. Kitts and Nevis they are now on par each sharing about 50% of the market.

Flow uses US frequencies of 850 MHz and 1900 MHz for its 2G/GSM and 3G/HSPA+ and 700 MHz for 4G/LTE (Bands 13, 17), while Digicel uses European frequencies of 900 MHz and 1800 MHz for 2G/EDGE and 2100 MHz for 3G/HSPA+. Both operators used to market their 3G/HSPA+ networks as "4G", but in 2017/8 both networks started real 4G/LTE on 700 MHz.

Prices are given in East Caribbean dollar (EC$) that is fixed to the US$: US$1 = EC$2.70. Taxes are included.



Flow, up to 2015 called Lime and rebranded, is the incumbent provider in St. Kitts and Nevis. It's operated by Cable & Wireless that has been sold to Liberty Global.

In 2017 FLOW launched St. Kitts & Nevis' first 4G/LTE network on Band 13 (700 MHz). It's currently available in the capital city, Basseterre, St. Peter’s and Bird Rock in St. Kitts as well as Charlestown in Nevis.

FLOW has since expanded their LTE service in St. Kitts to offer LTE Advanced with maximum speeds of up to 200 Mbit/s. It is primarily available in the populous areas on Saint Kitts and also on Nevis: coverage map.


Their SIM card is sold in their stores on both islands (locator) and some other places for EC$ 25. Be prepared to show your passport at the point of purchase. For 4G/LTE be sure to get a 4G/LTE-enabled SIM.

Top-ups between EC$ 5 and EC$ 200 can be made online or in top-up kiosks, supermarkets and gas stations all over the islands. Any top-up stays valid for 90 days irrespective of the amount.
