Get facts right on Cable & Wireless

THE EDITOR, Sir:

In a letter to the editor written by a Mr Bernard Francis and published in The Gleaner on Saturday, November 22, 2014, the writer asserted that "Cable and Wireless has helped Britain to spy on unsuspecting Internet users across the world".

We make it clear that this allegation is strictly in reference to Cable and Wireless Worldwide (CWW), the UK entity that was acquired by Vodafone. The original article - which the writer may have relied on - was very clear in stating that point.

Please note that CWW and Cable and Wireless Communica-tions are two separate entities.
