So all of the time they were paying for these services, isn't that nice, so how come now they refuse to or can't?
They overcharge us enough already why they can't use the extreme profit they make to continue keeping it free.

TSTT currently cross-subsidizes some of their services which may result in fines from the TATT.

This means that they use revenue from high profit areas of their operations eg ADSL and mobile services to pay for part of the cost of unprofitable services such as Directory Assistance and rural fixed-line phone service expansion.

As predicted,TSTT will soon as for a rate-rebalancing on the local fixed-line phone rates which may be a hard sell for customers but we have to pay the actual cost to provide the service.

If the prices are to increase,it is not in the hands of the telecom provider but it's the new regulatory framework as it applies to telecommunications here in TT with the introduction of competition in most of the local sector.

Competition is great but someone has to pay the real price for it.

TSTT will be charging the $1.00 per minute not because they want to but because they have to.

Small correction: As stated in my initial message, it is $1.00 per call and not per minute!

With regard to fixed-line services,we would like another concession to operate so that we can get lower rates now with the true rates coming to bite us in the future... :unsure:

Will Flow need interconnection with TSTT when they launch their local VoIP services so we can call TSTT customers? I gues they would also need interconnection with Digicel and Laqtel as well.
Will they? :huh:

There will need to be interconnection for all parties concerned.

Then I wonder if they'll be getting the same problems as Digicel when it comes to interconnection?
