The ongoing battle between Digicel and GT&T over the latter’s monopoly on international calls is much more than a telecommunications war. This fight which really shouldn’t be happening in the first place is another testimony to the incompetence and discrepancies of the current administration.
The last minute pulling of the telecommunications legislation by the government remains unanswered. Although I look forward to the monopoly being broken, I believe Digicel is fighting a lost battle. Sunday’s Kaieteur article “FAT CATS UNMASKED” reaffirms my view of the situation. The last line of the third column should be of great concern to Digicel and its consumers: “Major General (ret’d) Joseph G Singh who has been retained by Office of the President as a Special Assistant to the President is paid some $667,440 for his services…”
So the current acting CEO of GT&T Major General (ret’d) Joseph Singh is also Special Assistant to the President who has the final say on the direction that the sector will take. This is definitely a conflict of interest and does not augur well for Digicel or consumers at large.
Nevertheless, I am looking forward to seeing where this most recent fight goes.
