Caribbean Association of National Telecommunication Organizations
The Caribbean Association of National Telecommunication Organizations (CANTO) was founded in 1985 as a nonprofit association of telephone operating companies in the Caribbean. This initiative marked the first time that Caribbean Operating companies had come together to address independently a wide array of telecommunication issues of mutual concern. CANTO’s objective, then and now, is to establish a forum through which Caribbean Telecommunication Organizations may exchange information and expertise pertaining to the telecommunications field, generate inputs for orderly growth of the sectors, formulate policy and consider matters of mutual interest to its members. Over the past twenty six years our membership has grown from eight members in eight countries in 1985 to 111 in 31 countries in 2009.
