Flow and Digicel To Be Forced To Share Bandwidth With APUA

Notes from Cabinet did not name the companies but Flow and Digicel have been singled out by the government on the same issue in the past.

The government said its decision is “an irreversible decision to redistribute the bandwidth, taking into account that the APUA-Inet has applied to share in the space.”

That decision becomes effective almost immediately.

“The frequency is owned by the sovereign and may be redistributed when the license period is at an end. Distributed bandwidth  does not exist in perpetuity,” the Cabinet asserted

  1. This is what happens when inadequate personnel is placed into these technical jobs. Politics run APUA so its always what the Minister say. Now the regulator/competitor wants to share . LoL. We are still waiting on number portability and if they can’t agree to that how you go force them to share bandwidth. Dude, your just ALL TALK. Remember your also implementing a digital ID system for all citizens by year end. We waiting on that to.
