Broadband benefits

The deputy chairman of a high tech start-up in The Bahamas weighed in on the planned sale of a 51 percent stake in the Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) to Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC), predicting that CWC's know-how in broadband would strengthen BTC's online services and build a part of the business that has yet to reach its full potential.
Brian Quinn, the deputy chairman of IP Solutions International (IPSI) and the former CEO of what is now Reuters TV, said the Bahamian government had "few options open to it" when it selected CWC because of the "small size of the market, limited growth potential, and BTC's intermediate technology and current reliance on its ...

BTC monopoly was maintained to 'maximise jobs' in public sector


Tribune Staff Reporter

THE monopoly held by the Bahamas Telecommunications Company was maintained for so many years to "maximise jobs" in the public sector and to protect the government's investment, Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said.

The old BTC would not survive in the "aggressive marketing environment" of a liberalised market, because it does not have the necessary strengths in "mobile service," said Mr Ingraham as he tabled documents related to the sale of BTC to Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC).

He said concerns about BTC's ability to compete fueled the government's decision in the past to maint ...

What is seen and what is not seen in the case of BTC

Dear Editor,
In 1848 the French Economist Frederic Bastiat published an essay titled "What Is Seen and What Is Not Seen" and it's very relevant to the sale of BTC by the Government of The Bahamas today.

The unseen were the less obvious, and often unintended, consequences. In his famous essay "What Is Seen and What Is Not Seen," Bastiat wrote:
"There is only one difference between a bad economis ...

Money from BTC sale 'will go towards national debt'

THE Ingraham administration is "committed" to constructing a new public hospital for New Providence, but is compelled by the weak global economy to use the money from the sale of BTC to go towards paying off the national debt.

During the 2008/2009 budget debate, Prime Minister Ingraham had pledged that with the proceeds of BTC's privatisation, the government would build a new hospital.

But the $210 million Cable and Wireless is giving the government for its 51 per cent stake in BTC will now go toward paying down the rapidly escalating national debt.
