Bermudan government: Digicel’s long-distance service is breaking the law

7 Dec 2011

The legal battle over Digicel Bermuda’s long-distance service has intensified following a government ruling that the telco’s offer, which is delivered through sister company Transact, is illegal, and that Transact does not hold a licence to conduct business in Bermuda. In a package of affidavits filed ahead of next week’s Supreme Court hearing to consider the legality of the Digicel/Transact service, the government claims it did not give the green light to Digicel to offer the service via Transact. A spokesperson for the telecoms ministry declined to comment on the matter, saying only: ‘As the matter is before the courts, the Ministry will not comment.’
