KINGSTON, Jamayik (defend.ht / Jamayik Obsèvatè) - Digicel te akòde yon lisans ki pral pèmèt li nan konekte ki fèt kab fib nan vwazen Ayiti ak Bahamas soti nan Jamayik, men gwoup la se toujou planifye aplikasyon an nan pwojè an.
The Office of the Utilities Regulations (OUR) in its business plan for 2011-2014 said it had received applications for two submarine cable carrier licences, which were processed and recommendations sent to the Office of the Prime minister.
The OUR did not mention another provider, but said a carrier licence was issued to "Digicel Cable Communications Ltd to construct, own and operate two international submarine cables and associated facilities".
Yesterday, Digicel said it can confirm that the licence was issued but, in a written response to Business Observer queries, added that "We are still in the planning phase and as such, we will not be providing any further information at this point".
Digicel actually attempted being licensed in 2004 before the Government issued a licence to Columbus Communications, which operates in Jamaica as Flow, but was apparently unsuccessful.
Another submarine cable that links Jamaica to Cuba, will begin construction soon as part of a partnership with Telecommunicaciones Gran Caribe (TGC), a joint venture between Cuba (Transbit SA) and Venezuela (Telecom Venezuela).
THE OUR said that it will receive funding from the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) that will provide "technical assistance to develop a regulatory framework for international submarine landing stations and cable facilities and other associated international facilities".
The project has been extended to June 2011.
