I have noticed that Digicell (BTL mobile) signal levels, call completion and call quality have been wacky for the last week. This morning, it appears everything is slowed to a crawl, signal is down below 10% right in town and I cannot complete any calls. Anybody else?

We have been having very bad btl phone service lately - and not just cell phones. Yesterday we had a few people call the office saying that it showed that we had called and they missed the call. But we didn't call them!

The digicell signal has been lously lately.

Many of the phones in San Pedro have a very loud, annoying and disconcerting crackle as well. Apparently some type of radio interference.

No service off and on for the last few days and voice mail messages coming 24 hours later. Text messages haven't been going out or coming in either.

On our land lines at TMM we are getting quite a few crossed line calls as well.

My phone is new, but I have had several voice mail messages from people who called, couldn't get through, and left a message. Yet my phone never rang and no missed call was recorded.

I reported a fault to Digicell/BTL this morning. I'll follow up with them this afternoon. I presume one of their antennas is faulty or the connectors have corroded over time. Might be a day or two before they get someone to check it...

The problem has persisted since Wed... As if we used to have 100% coverage, is now dropped to 30% - even in town.

If anybody is trying to get in touch with CC, please email me.
