Energy Minister, Fayval Williams says the government is now primarily focused on improving the telecommunications network across the country before it introduces more competition in the market.

The Opposition Spokesman on Energy, Phillip Paulwell on Tuesday urged Minister Williams to recognize that one of the best ways of improving service in the telecoms industry was to pave the way for more competition.

This follows a statement by the Minister where she said both major telecommunications providers, Digicel and Flow needed to improve their service delivery. 

The Energy Minister says it’s important to ensure that customers across Jamaica are accessing quality telecommunications infrastructure.
