Chief Executive Officer of the Bahamas Telecommunications Company [BTC] spoke to ZNS News responding to the concerns of the company’s independent contractors.

Sameer Bhatti said, “my approach is gonna be, when I meet with them again, is to listen and I hope to have more time to do so than the first time I met. But what I’d also say is as we’ve moved to 70% fiber that’s less of a copper footprint if you would, and that’s where the core skillset of many of these independent contractors has lied. And so we really look for them to continue to up skill themselves and move with us at BTC as we move further and further on our fiber journey.”
