Vodafone awaits court decision on its attempt to bar new operator

6 Jun 2006

Vodafone Fiji has filed an injunction against the country’s Telecommunications Ministry in an attempt to stop the government from licensing a new mobile operator. Vodafone’s case centres on the terms of the exclusive licence it was previously awarded by the state which it says prevents the ministry from issuing any more licences for mobile services. The government is keen to introduce competition, although Minister Isireli Leweniqila confirmed that the pending stay order had delayed the issuing of the licence.
