Court rules for SamoaTel in case against Digicel

7:11 pm on 29 October 2009

Samoa's telecommunication corporation SamoaTel is celebrating a court ruling.

This follows the dismissal of mobile phone operator Digicel Samoa's appeal in the Samoa Supreme Court last week.

SamoaTel's Corporate Manager, Susan Hugget, says the court decision means a gross inequity has now been corrected with SamoaTel no longer continuing to overpay Digicel in interconnect payments.

SamoaTel says the ruling is likely to have a multi-million tala impact on the industry locally as well as in the Pacific region.
