Cariaccess Communications (website here) has filed a second lawsuit against Cable & Wireless and the Telecom Regulators; this time in St. Lucia. BFP’s previous article on this subject can be found here. Following is the latest press release from Cariaccess…
December 29th 2006:
Cariaccess Communications (St. Lucia) Ltd. would like to announce that we have filed a second lawsuit against Cable & Wireless (West Indies) Ltd. (C&W) and now the National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NTRC) of St. Lucia, asking for interconnection and claiming damages and losses amounting to over EC$68 million and counting (US$25 million).
Almost 4 years after being awarded its St. Lucian telecom license, Cariaccess remains unable to interconnect to the (PSTN) public-switched telephone, Internet and other networks, in St. Lucia or anywhere else in the OECS.
As in the case announced recently in St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Cariaccess looks forward to a speedy resolution to this ongoing problem and to being able to soon offer a comprehensive suite of high-quality, cost-effective telecom services to our fellow Caribbean consumer.
Cariaccess also reserves all legal rights and is exploring every legal option in each Caricom island market.
