The government is trying to reduce how much it pays for cell phone service, including roaming. And officials who have government issued cells have been told that the service will be suppressed.
The Cabinet says the cost of roaming, especially data rather than voice, has begun to cut deep into the revenue which the state usually receives from the providers.
The Cabinet also says that an arrangement has been made with Microsoft to allow for the use of Skype, on the cell phones.
The Government Chief of Staff, Lionel “max” Hurst says the arrangement fixes the cost of monthly charges and ensures that officials who travel abroad can stay connected with Antigua.
