DIGICEL STATEMENT
Monday 27th September 2010

Digicel's aim is to ensure that customers can benefit from best value mobile services.

As such, Digicel on Friday issued legal proceedings in the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court challenging the purported exclusive monopoly held by Cable & Wireless on international calls coming in and out of Antigua and Barbuda. 

Digicel has sought various declarations from the Court concerning the validity of Cable and Wireless’ licence as well as various declarations that the continued imposition of this Cable and Wireless international monopoly breaches fundamental provisions of the Constitution of Antigua & Barbuda. 
 
As Digicel’s challenge is based on constitutional provisions and challenges to the licence as issued to Cable and Wireless in 1987, Digicel has served those proceedings on the Attorney General of Antigua and Barbuda. 

With the exception of Guyana, Antigua and Barbuda is the last territory in the Caribbean region where the telecommunications market is not fully liberalized.   

Contrary to misleading press statements made by Cable and Wireless, it is important to point out that Digicel is not suing the Government of Antigua and Barbuda for damages or compensation relating to this matter.

Rather, as the champion of competition, Digicel is simply seeking declarations from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court which will finally bring an end to Cable and Wireless' lengthy monopoly and bring the benefits of full competition for international calls to the people of Antigua and Barbuda.
