Legal Dispute between Telecom Operators: Digicel against C&W

After Digicel filed legal action against the BVI Telecommunications Regulatory Commission, and won it, the company has filed an application against Cable & Wireless. The company declares that the rival operator used illegal practices to delay the entry of Digicel into a number of Caribbean markets, and seeks for multi-million-pound compensation for lost revenue, profits and market share.

The lawsuit was filed last week in a British high court, the countries involved are St Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Barbados, the Cayman Islands, Trinidad and Tobago, the Turks and Caicos Islands. According to Digicel, when it began expanding its operations in the markets of these countries from 2002 to 2006, C&W resisted interconnection between different mobile and fixed land providers.
