The Chairman of LIME Jamaica has repeated the company’s call for the government to urgently level the playing field in the telecoms market.

Addressing a Rotary Club of Kingston meeting this afternoon Chris Dehring stressed that the company needs reduced rates to effectively compete in the mobile market.

While expressing that LIME remains committed to Jamaica, Dehring said the market is uncompetitive as government has failed to institute a flat rate to call rival networks.

Currently, it costs about double for a LIME customer to call a phone on the rival network, Digicel.

The LIME Chairman says it is time for government to implement the new Telecoms Act currently before parliament in order to flatten rates and enable competition.
