On their social media platforms, both companies acknowledged there were issues, but by noon they said the issues had been resolved.
During the morning, a notice on Bmobile’s Facebook page said, “We are aware of an issue with interconnect services between bmobile and Digicel. We have all hands on deck, and we are working with Digicel to have this resolved in the shortest time possible.
“We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as repairs progress.”

“We are working with TSTT to have this resolved in as little time as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will provide you with an update when the issue has been resolved.”
