The EDITOR, Sir:
I write in response to your article 'Consumer group against break-up of JPS monopoly'.
This article confirms what many Jamaicans believe - we really don't have journalists, we have reporters.
In this 21st century, it smacks as an insult to the intelligence of Jamaicans for such an article to be published in the manner it was.
It would have helped had the author of the article done some investigations, and highlight comparative data. Any thinking person knows that it's foolhardy to monopolise utility company; and for a consumer group of the sort to come out and express such views begs more questions than is of any help, really.
Take for example this fact: JPS charges its customers for the electricity 'used', it then charges its customers fuel/IPP charges, which is, in some instances, twice that billed for actual kWh used. So you actually pay three times for doing business with JPS.
