Digicel's statement on Antigua's proposed buyout

No Comments

digicel.jpgContrary to multiple media reports and statements made by the Prime Minister of Antigua & Barbuda over the last two weekends, Digicel would like to make it clear that that it has not received any approaches of any kind at any time from the Prime Minister or anyone in the Government of Antigua & Barbuda with regard to a buyout of Digicel's operations in the twin island state.

For the avoidance of doubt, any assertions to the contrary are complete fiction and represent part of an ongoing campaign by the Government of Antigua & Barbuda to distract and disseminate false information.

As such, Digicel would also like to take this opportunity to bring the focus back to the real issue at hand - namely the unfair, anti-competitive and illegal actions by the Government of Antigua & Barbuda in seeking to confiscate Digicel's legally allocated spectrum for the benefit of the state-owned operator, APUA.

With the matter before the Courts, Digicel will fight vigorously to defend its customers and its business in the interest of fair and healthy competition in Antigua & Barbuda.
