Time running out on Wave Telecom

24 May 2004

Guernsey’s Wave Telecom is facing the prospect of legal action from the Office of Utility Regulation if it continues to stall the launch of a mobile network on the island. The company was obliged to introduce a service on 30 April but claims its efforts have been delayed by longer than expected talks with incumbent cellco Cable & Wireless. The two sides have clashed over issues such as mast-sharing, with Wave accusing its rival of stalling negotiations. Wave Telecom now has a new deadline of 1 July to set up the service.
