Interim Interconnection Agreement: 25 June 2008 -25 June 2010
The previous terms governing interconnection between TVL and Digicel network for voice and SMS traffic were contained in the Interim Interconnection Agreement (the “Agreement”) dated 13 March 2008, which came into effect on 25 June 2008 and had a term of four (4) years. The agreement was reviewable after 20 months of the effective date.
In March 2010, TVL and Digicel tried to re-negotiate the existing prices under the Agreement in good faith for a period of over 20 working days but were unable to reach agreement and referred the dispute to Telecommunications Radiocommunications and Broadcasting Regulator (TRBR) for determination. TRBR released its Final Determination on 9 July 2010 then was reviewed in January 2011 at Digicel request, and ended in June 2012.
