Wednesday January 29, 2003: It has been brought to the attention of the Ministers of ECTEL Member States: Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines that Cable and Wireless will be publishing new proposed tariffs, effective March 1st, 2003.

Cable and Wireless will be making this application under the May 20th, 2002 agreement between the OECS Heads of Government and Cable and Wireless to ensure that they have an application before the NTRC within the required thirty-day time frame prior to the expiration of the interim 9-month agreement.

ECTEL Ministers wish to advise that work is ongoing on a Price Cap Regime that will determine Prices of Telecommunications services. Cable and Wireless has been engaged in this process, and part of the delay in the implementation of this Price Cap is that the full information required for completion is still to be submitted by Cable and Wireless.

Cable and Wirelessís application for a rate change will be subject to regulatory approval by the NTRC.

Ministers will act to ensure that the interests of the consumers are protected within the provisions of the agreement and the regulations.
