Says (FR) Radio Kiskeya: “The arrival of Caribbean operator Digicel triggers a counter-offensive from its Haitian competitors.” Haitel and Comcel, aided by [local telecom regulatory body] CONATEL are crying foul at a commercial pamphlet issued by Digicel that offers trade-ins of non-compatible devices. CONATEL has criticized the pamphlets alleging the naming of competitors in advertizing is not welcome in Haiti.
