During a Press conference yesterday at Hilton Barbados, the Digicel boss told reporters: “The Fair Trading Commission now has agreed that this is a dispute that they are now going to make judgment on.”

The FTC was called in as a result of the failure of LIME and Digicel to broker an agreement on changing the terms of the interconnection deal between the parties to allow Digicel to add fixed line services to its mobile network.

Digicel currently offers mobile, Internet and a number of technological solutions for businesses.
