Digicel denies talks

The Irish-owned telecommunications company, Digicel, has denied a statement by Prime Minister Gaston Browne that it was in discussions with the authorities to sell its operations there.

This as the legal battle continues over the government’s move to have two foreign companies, including Digicel, share spectrum space with a state-owned entity.

Last weekend, Prime Minister Browne, stressed that he believes that Digicel “is showing an inclination to have possibly a 49-51 percentage situation.

But in a statement, Digicel said that it has not received any approaches of any kind at any time from the Prime Minister or anyone in the Antigua and Barbuda government on the matter.
