The GCN network is a fully owned submarine fiber optic cable network run by state of the art electronics and management systems. GCN has extensive capacity on other submarine networks connecting locations such as Miami, Paris and New York.

As an innovative network provider, GCN operates on the basis of increasing the broadband capacity access for the Caribbean region. As a result of GCN's operating policy, market breaking prices have been set, flexible capacity terms have been established and innovative market offers have been created to permit international carriers, ISPs, cable TV operators, and enterprises unparalleled access to quality, affordable broadband capacity.



GCN offers international private circuits on either a lease or IRU basis. Following the basic philosophy of expanding broadband penetration in the Caribbean, GCN offers IRUs to enterprise customers as well, giving this segment the first opportunity to enjoy the benefits of owning capacity rather than just leasing it.

Iru stands for Indefeasible Right of Use and is generally a fifteen year ownership of capacity which is treated as an asset and enjoys the benefit of depreciation on the corporate income statement. An iru is the lowest possible cost of capacity a company can obtain.
GCN offers international lease circuits in all the standard ITU interfaces such as E1, DS3, STM1, STM4, STM16, and STM64.
Leasing discounts are available for 3 and 5 year lease terms.
