Regulator rejects C&W appeal

10 Jun 2005

Panama’s supreme court has thrown out an appeal by Cable & Wireless (C&W) against a daily fine of USD1,300 imposed by the regulator ERSP. The fine was introduced by the regulator for every day C&W fails to allow all public telephones to accept the 177 card used by pre-paid cards of rival operator Clarocom. C&W has denied doing this and says it supports liberalisation.
