Digicel takes C&W to Court

From Caribbean360:

ST JOHN'S, Antigua, Thursday September 30, 2010 - Digicel has had enough of its rival's monopoly on international calls coming in and out of Antigua and Barbuda, and it has gone to court to break it.

The company has announced that it has started legal proceedings in the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court challenging the exclusive monopoly held by Cable & Wireless.

In this latest court battle, Digicel said it is seeking "various declarations from the court concerning the validity of Cable and Wireless licence as well as various declarations that the continued imposition of this Cable and Wireless international monopoly breaches fundamental provisions of the Constitution of Antigua and Barbuda."
