Digicel Loses Bid to Challenge New Call Rates Set by OUR

Digicel has lost its bid to challenge the decision by the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) to set call rates.

Justice Ingrid Mangatal handed down the ruling a short while ago.

The judge says the parties are to come back before her tomorrow for the written reasons for turning down Digicel’s application for leave to challenge the OUR.

Following recent amendments to the telecoms Act, the OUR announced interim mobile termination rate of $5 per minute for incoming domestic and international telephone calls effective July 15.

Digicel then filed an application in the Supreme Court objecting to the move claiming that the OUR did not follow due process.
