...And The Law Won!.

Today is a sad day for Digicel. Let's have a moment of silence. Ok, that's long enough. And that's about how long Digicel's attempt to challenge the OUR lasted.

In case you haven't been following this debacle, the gist of it is that Digicel wanted to take the OUR to court, to challenge their authority to set lower call rates. But first they had to get permission to take the matter to court, said permission having been denied.

The song above came to mind. Written by Sonny Curtis of The Crickets, and made popular by the Bobby Fuller Four. The chorus goes:

"I fought the law and the law won!"

What is a loss for Digicel is a big win for Jamaican mobile phone users.
