I did not start out angry at the Bahamas Telecommunications Company. I did not love it but I was trying. It had some things going for it.
It had a customer service number that was easy to remember and free to call from your cell phone –CALL-BTC (225-5282). What a convenience! I could call when I was walking somewhere and ask about a bill or even add options to my account.
I readily switched post paid and am still the only person I know that was willing to try the unlimited data plan. For a year I paid $25 every month so that I was online all the time.
So why the frustration?
I think the best way to give an snapshot of the BTC experience is to tell you a specific story, my story. It is a personal example and as such has its limitations. But I feel it is a fair representation. If you disagree please

"The Financial Voice" (TFV), the forum that brings together experts from various economic sectors to weigh in on issues impacting the national economy, will take on its fifth annual examination of the national budget on June 19 at the J. Whitney Pinder Building, Collins Avenue beginning at 8 p.m.
The event is open to the public and will also be carried via ZNS television. Members of the public tuning in to the television broadcasts will be able to ask questions of the panel by telephone, text or fax.
The forum is expected to tackle such topical issues as the government's controversial mortgage relief commitment - how practicable it is and what its implications are for the national economy.
Panelists are also likely to touch on the provisions for rationalizing tariffs and excise and for bringing the national debt-to-GDP ratio in line with what international public finance experts consider prudent.
The panelists for the event are I. Chester Cooper, president of Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation and CEO of BAF; Hubert Edwards, senior manager, business and strategic management, Bank of The Bahamas; Gowon Bowe, partner, PWC; Dr. Robin Roberts, urologist and director, UWI School of Clinical Medicine & Research, The Bahamas; Chris Mortimer, entrepreneur; and Rupert Pinder, economist and assistant professor, The College of Bahamas. The Bahamas Hotel Association will be represented by its president, Stuart Bowe.
Joan Albury, president of TCL Group, organizers of The Financial Voice, said in a release that the 2012/2013 budget is a crucial one for the country and one Bahamians need to understand.
"At this critical stage of our country's development, we are pleased to be presenting this edition of The Financial Voice. It's our first public forum since May 7 and the first private sector event to discuss the new national budget at such a high level," she said.
"It is our hope that the conversation will help Bahamians to understand more fully the challenges and opportunities reflected in the 2012/2013 budget now being debated in Parliament."

CONFUSION reigned last night over the immediate fate of two New Providence-based City Market stores after the union representing the company's line staff said it had received a fax notifying it of their closure.
However, when a Tribune Business team visited the Seagrapes Shopping centre store last night it was trading normally.
The same situation occcurred with two City Market Freeport stores where staff were initially told to go home only to be called back and the outlets recommenced normal operations.
City Markets principal Mark Finlayson told Tribune Business on Monday that the supermarket chain was planning to close both the Seagrapes and ...
