However, in response to the OUR’s correspondence, the company subsequently acknowledged that the implementation of the PMF may not have been ‘customer centric’ and that it had not in fact provided sufficient notice of the change to its customers. As a result, Digicel has decided to withdraw the fee at this time. It says any decision to resume charging the PMF, will be preceded by proper notification to customers and the OUR. The company also gave assurances that all affected customers who were charged this fee since 2017 June 22, have already received rebates of the amounts charged. Given this development the OUR has suspended, for now, its enquiry into this matter.
