LIME Jamaica's Managing Director Gary Sinclair has expressed shock at Digicel's recent move to block the Office of the Utilities Regulation's authority to reduce interconnection rates and to also place an injunction on LIME's new $1.99/2.99 mobile call rates. LIME's new call rates took effect on June 15, however Digicel went to the Supreme Court a day before stating that the new call rates would damage their reputation and they would suffer substantial losses. However Mr. Sinclair views the suit as not only against LIME and the OUR but this move is also against ordinary consumers.
