GTT’s application for increase in bundled landline rates denied – PUC

first_imgJust a few weeks ago, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) approved rates for GTT’s call-blocking feature; however, on Wednesday it denied an application made by the telecommunications giant to increase a number of landline charges.According to the PUC, the company applied for the increase in landline charges from $750 to $800 for each household on October 1, 2018.The application further noted that the charges could go up to $1600 for two or more lines.Further, businesses would have to pay $2500 monthly for up to four lines as opposed to the current payments of $2250 monthly.The company also wanted approval of five residential bundled services that relate exclusively to the landline service, including an all-inclusive (intra and inter), access for $6500 per month with call forwarding, voicemail and call waiting, and an unlimited friend-and-family call bundle for five persons for $1850.After reviewing the application, the PUC, along with the Guyana Consumers Association, objected to the increase, stating that GTT did not present a convincing case for the application of an increase.The PUC said that it was not convinced that the expenses accurately reflect a cost-efficient utility, taking into consideration the size and the scope of the operations of the company, and whether the values of the non-current assets as stated in the company’s financial statement were acquired at market value at the time of acquisition.The PUC said also that the company has purportedly invested heavily in non-current assets for more than a decade, but same was not reflected in expected profit progression or in the quality of the company’s services to its customers.GTT has been applying for a number of tariff increases recently as Guyana prepares for the liberalisation of the telecoms sectors to allow new investors. The Guyana Consumers Association has, however, been insisting that GTT has not been investing as it should.Already, GTT has been approved to institute new tariffs for landlines.last_img read more

Government’s Brexit plan must lead to major investment in Donegal – Mac Lochlainn

first_imgSenator Padraig Mac Lochlainn says the Government’s Brexit Plan must lead to major investment in Donegal.“Projects like the development of Greencastle Harbour, the construction of the N56 Letterkenny Relief Road and the upgrade of the N14 and N15 roads must be provided for”Speaking after the Government published its plan and approach to the Brexit negotiations, Donegal Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn drew attention to two key stated objectives in the government statement that must lead to major investment in Donegal. Senator Mac Lochlainn said “Two key stated objectives stand out to me from a Donegal perspective.”They are:Prioritising policy measures and dedicating resources to protect jobs and businesses in sectors and regions most affected by BrexitMaking a strong case at EU level that Ireland will require support that recognises where Brexit represents serious disturbance to the Irish economy He said “These two stated objectives twinned with the opportunities presented by the new 10 year Capital Plan and the National Planning Framework 2040 must lead to major investment in Donegal if the governments Brexit strategy is to mean anything.The Goverment will soon sign off on their new 10 year Capital Plan. Projects like the development of Greencastle Harbour, the construction of the N56 Letterkenny Relief Road and the upgrade of the N14 and N15 roads must be provided for this time. There can be no more excuses”.He continued “The roll of the National Broadband Plan must also be prioritised for Donegal. As we stand, tens of thousands of Donegal homes will be waiting years for an adequate and modern broadband supply.“What additional investment will the LYIT receive? They must be at the heart of any economic strategy.“It is clear that our farming and fishing communities in Donegal will need huge support to deal with the threat of Brexit. The government need to spell out clearly what that support will be. “Yesterday’s published government strategy for the Brexit negotiations is a step in the right direction but much more now needs to be done and the proof will be in the pudding, as they say, over the time ahead. Me and my Sinn Féin colleagues will hold them to account all the way”.Government’s Brexit plan must lead to major investment in Donegal – Mac Lochlainn was last modified: May 3rd, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Brexit PlandonegalSenator Padraig Mac Lochlainnlast_img read more

Hillsides prepped for rainy season

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 A city and Los Angeles County Public Works task force will hire contractors to remove up to a foot of debris from the cement and dirt basins. which lie at the bottom of ravines coming out of the mountains. “We’re hardening our infrastructure to get ready for winter,” said Burbank interim public works director Bonnie Teaford. “This is a top priority for us.” Burbank has not suffered a major mudslide in at least two decades, Teaford said. The most damage has been occasional sloughing off hillsides, she said. “I preferred that the hillsides had not burned,” she said. “But this is part of nature’s cycle. In L.A., we have four seasons – spring, summer, fire and rain.” A contractor was expected to begin clearing the debris basins next week after Burbank officials get environmental permits from state and federal agencies. BURBANK – Worried about the potential for winter mudslides coming out of the scorched Verdugo Mountains, Burbank officials are clearing out a dozen debris basins before the impending rain season. Officials are also identifying homes and other structures that might be in the path of mudslides, mapping areas below the hillsides burned last week by an 1,100-acre wild fire. “It completely denuded the hills of any growth,” said Burbank Fire Department Battalion Chief Ray Krakowski. “So that’s pretty much the stuff that holds everything down. You have a convergence of canyons, and you have the potential for runoff.” The assessment of danger areas isn’t expected to be complete until the end of next week. Work on the debris basins, which are at the bottom of ravines coming out of the mountains, is expected to begin next week, and officials hope it is complete by Dec. 1. The contractors use large excavators and dump trucks to cart away the debris. The city reuses the dirt to cover over trash at the city’s landfill, Teaford said. Cleanup on one medium-size basin costs between $50,000 and $100,000. Last week’s fire was suspicious in origin, fire officials said. It started on a hillside above the DeBell Municipal Golf Course.

Bell may toll soon for stylish bar

first_imgWas the name of a swanky bar in downtown Greensboro inspired by a literary giant or a pet bulldog? It may take a court decision to settle the dispute. The owner of Hemingway’s Downtown says he named the 6-month-old business after the English bulldog he had as a boy. Heirs of Ernest Hemingway, the author of “The Old Man and the Sea” and “A Farewell to Arms,” say that doesn’t matter and have filed a lawsuit in U.S. Middle District Court claiming trademark infringement and unfair competition. They want owner Jeff Schleuning to stop using a name for his bar they believe is synonymous with the famous author. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake “Regardless of who the establishment was named after, it really would not matter,” said John F. Morrow Jr., a Winston-Salem lawyer representing the plaintiffs. “The question is whether there is consumer confusion over the source of the name.” Schleuning said Friday he wasn’t aware of the lawsuit. He noted that nothing about the bar evokes the author. “We’re actually the kind of bar he would despise coming to,” Schleuning said. “From what I know of him, he liked little dive-type bars.” The bar opened in June near a cluster of dance clubs and bars. It targets an older, upper-class clientele who pay a membership fee to sip specialty martinis and smoke cigars. The plaintiffs claim they sent a letter in June asking Schleuning to stop using Hemingway’s name. According to the lawsuit, Hemingway Ltd. is a corporation owned by the author’s heirs, who own all trademark rights to his name, photograph, likeness, signature and persona. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
