GTA continues potshots at rival IT&E

Posted: Updated:

Guam - GTA TeleGuam continues to mount a compelling case against why rival telecommunications company IT&E should not receive federal funding.  Citing a report by the FCC auditing national broadband deployment, GTA noted that not one part of Guam is seen as unserved, and thus the $88 million in stimulus funding sought by IT&E for local use is unnecessary. 

That money, GTA claims, should be devoted to areas within the Micronesia region that are legitimately in need of such infrastructure - namely Saipan, Tinian and Rota.

GTA projects that the stimulus infusion would "tilt the competitive playing field in favor of one company and return Guam to pre-privatization days of high rates, slow innovation and poor service".
