Caricel to continue trading despite court ruling
08 February 2017 | James Pearce
Caribbean operator Caricel has pledged to continue offering services, despite an on-going legal battle in the Jamaican courts.
On 24 January, the Supreme Court ruled against Symbiote, refusing the operator’s application for an injunction and allowing the government to carry out investigations into its services.
The court ruling means Caricel faces losing the license it was granted in May 2016 that allowed it to deploy 4G services across the Caribbean island. Caricel has invested around $50 million on deployment so far, with a further $50 million earmarked for expansion over the next three years.
Symbiote company secretary Minett Lawrence told the Observer: “We wish to reassure our customers that Caricel has a valid domestic carrier and service provider licence to provide local, fixed and international services, and our spectrum licence remains intact.
“We continue to offer top of the line service to our customers, and we look forward to a speedy resolution of all outstanding issues in a manner that will benefit Jamaicans and the telecoms market.”
