The public hearing will be held at the Moorings Conference Room commencing at 9:00am.

Participation at the public hearing will be limited to Digicel and any interested third party who submitted a relevant comment or objection on Digicel’s application to the Commission by February 24, 2022, in response to the Commission’s notice dated 30 December 2021.
