Feedback: Montserrat anticipates possible ban for VOIP applications

Nort Edwards

On the blocking of VOIP by Digicel and LIME – C & W tried to do that with the “call back process in the mid to late 90’s. That was where a number in the USA was called which triggered a call back and the Caribbean could dial a number at a hugely reduced rate.

In Anguilla the government stood up to C&W when they tried to block the ‘callback “dodge”. C & W backed down.

For a couple of reasons. I do not think they can block the VOIP because it is internet service which they must provide. Also most also provide SMS which is not voice and if they block that then they can block the e-mail services.

Also what do they do about the cable tv companies that provide internet service and have been for years?

Before the Islands were scared to death of C & W but they could not take a fight and that is why they have essentially collapsed worldwide.
