LIME Antigua sues Digicel

LIME Antigua has filed suit in the
Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court against Digicel seeking to have Digicel cease
and desist, with immediate effect, from allegedly illegally bypassing LIME’s
international network.

LIME is also seeking redress in the
sum of US$8.6 million which represents revenue that LIME and the Antigua Public
Utilities Authority claim they have lost over the past three years because of
Digicel’s bypass activities

Don Austin, LIME’s executive
vice-president for Legal and Regulatory said Monday: “LIME has determined that
Digicel Antigua is engaged in bypass activities in relation to the origination
and termination of international calls out of and into Antigua and Barbuda in
contravention of the exclusive licence under which LIME operates. This action
by Digicel has resulted in significant financial losses to both LIME and APUA
and by extension the Government of Antigua and Barbuda.
