The Office of Utilities Regulations (OUR) could get support from telecommunications company LIME to fight a court action filed against the regulator by Digicel.
Digicel is seeking to have the Supreme Court review the law which granted the OUR powers to reduce interconnection rates.
LIME's Managing Director, Garry Sinclair, said his company will most likely join in on the court action to protect its interests.
Following the amendments to the Telecommunications Act, the OUR recently announced that as of July 15, the interim mobile termination rate would be $5 per minute for incoming domestic and international telephone calls.
However, Digicel is contending that due process was not followed and that it was not consulted before the new rate was set.
Digicel is set to make its case on Thursday for a stay of the implementation date for the new rate until its application is heard.
Yesterday, LIME, which last week significantly slashed its charges in anticipation of the new interim rate said it was shocked by the court action by Digicel.
Sinclair is maintaining that the OUR gave telecoms providers an opportunity to participate in consultations on the new rate.
He also said despite the latest action by Digicel, the $2.99 rate it announced last week will remain in place.
