BTC addresses the unfortunate headline -“BTC blames parent company for non-compliance, beyond our control” - in the March 11th edition of the Tribune newspaper. The company, is compelled to clarify its position in response to URCA regarding this issue. At no time was “blame” placed on our parent company, Cable & Wireless Communications. In response to the regulator’s ruling, BTC advised that the company is subject to complex commercial negotiations, which are often difficult to be constrained by mandated deadlines. Such was the case in this instance, and would have likely been the case regardless of where those negotiations originated or who conducted them. BTC has always and will continue to follow all applicable rules and regulations. The company intends to continue working with URCA to ensure that our customers and communities are provided with the best services at the most competitive prices.
