The media also took the opportunity to ask Chairman Barrow about several issues including the drop in profits at the government-owned telecommunications company. Barrow says that while the financials have seen a declining profit in the past, this year, the company expects to rebound.

“I think we have a very good outlook.  Over the past year and half, we’ve done a lot in terms of marketing and really modernizing our look, our field and services and giving the customer more value; that was the foundation of our more campaign which has been very successful. We will see an uptake in revenues this financial year upwards of ten million dollars when for the past six financial years before that, there were declines in revenue. So you can see the turnaround that is happening. But more importantly, is the technology turnaround that we plan to usher in. That takes a little more time and it is obviously things that we have to build in, but I can assure the public that as far as the mobile network is concerned, this year, they are going to see the launch of a brand new network. It is going to be a lot bigger, it is going to have a lot more features; next year in 2017, it will be expanded to cover a lot more areas, as I said on the podium. What we are also working with also is concurrently looking at how we develop the wire network. That’s more difficult to develop and takes a lot more resources and requires specific strategies in specific areas, but has more capabilities as it currently stands that the mobile network.”
