Digicel to shut down Claro network – Let the backlash begin ?

Digicel swallows Claro

The Jamaica Observer article first paragraph says “Digicel has been granted permission to shut down the Claro network less than four months after agreeing to keep it going under the terms of their merger. Permission for the network to be switched off was granted by the outgoing Jamaica Labour Party Government before December 8, as the general election campaign was kicking off. ” You know what this looks like right?

And as a result…the backlash has begun. The debate by consumers have begun to rise on Twitter, Facebook and BBM. In short, no matter how much love most people have for Digicel as the number one mobile service provider in Jamaica….they know when even their coveted winner, has been given what many see as a free pass.
