So cable and wireless saw it prudent to rebrand instead of giving people cheaper rates and better services. Its a move that can only be described as "if the world gives you lemonade - make limes". I can't imagine the millions of dollars that are being wasted to re-paint all those white walls. I can however imagine the hundreds of vandalists waiting in the shadows ready to scratch out that "I" and replace it with a "A" at the very first opportunity.

On the flip side though, the new staff shirts are a cool black with neon green trimings - heaven knows who I'm going to have to screw over to get one of those. It will catch on sooner or later whether it will make a difference is another story. Now I'm not always the harbinger of doom. If you throw enough money and time at anything, sonner or later something will come of it.

  6. I think they want to have a cool name, the less syllables the better. Also the name cable and wireless is badly stained and they want escape that. The "E" for entertainment is an addition

    The name change was all in vain if its the same service and attitude.

  7. I think that E was a after thought because they had an extra letter? who are they going to entertain? them going to start provide cable tv?

  9. All them communications companies are now stepping up their games.Claro, formerly MiPhone is now advertising more than ever and has a bold red and black building in NK. I heard from a little birdie that Digicel apparently took over some market in South America owned by one of the richest men in the world upsetting him. In this event he decided to come here, buy out MipHone and step up competition giving them a taste of their own medicine. In addition, Digicel has now covered their Building on Knustford also, i guess to re-paint and refurbish. I'm waiting to see how all this will end. Or not. [sceptical]
