TBI launches legal action over Digicel long distance plan
TeleBermuda International has launched legal proceedings against wireless provider Digicel to stop it offering its new long distance service.
TBI president Greg Swan said the legal action was taken late today and a hearing is expected as soon as tomorrow in Supreme Court.
Mr Swan said TBI is represented by Marshall Diel & Myers.
“It's basically action for an order to restrain Digicel from offering long distance service,” Mr Swan said tonight.
Mr Swan has called Digicel’s launch of long-distance service a “slap in the face” to Government’s telecoms regulatory reform process.
“This appears based on my interpretation to be in breach of their Class B licence,” he said.
Mr Swan said the Ministry had been very clear that regulatory reform was imminent and he finds it hard to believe the Ministry allowed Digicel to offer the new long distance service before reform.
