Imbert shocked at roaming rate: Caricom to hold talks *

Finance Minister Colm Imbert

Finance Minister Colm Imbert said yesterday he was “shocked” at the roaming charges in the Bahamas, which is ten times more than other Caricom countries.

And Public Ad­minis­tration and Com­munica­tions Minister Maxie Cuffie said Caricom Mi­nisters dealing with information and communi­cations technology (ICT) will today hold a virtual meeting to talk about ICT and roaming rates in the region.

However, Bahamas is not signatory to this and, therefore, their high roaming costs cannot be addressed.
