Managing Director of Flow Barbados, Niall Sheehy noted that Barbados was the first to market the Flow brand following the merger of Cable and Wireless and Columbus Communications.

“We actually officially launched flow last year on the 16th of July and I think it’s incredible how fast the people of Barbados accepted it and we’re very happy and appreciative.

    Please stop your false advertising. You do NOT have 100% fibre to home; unless mine doesn’t count. Follow Lime Old Ways…

    I guess those who celebrated with them are the few who receive good service. I had a recurrence of my perennial “shower of rain problem” twice last week (dead phone and internet whenever rain falls) and even before that had no access to my voicemail for the second time since the takeover. Still no access after more than a week. When I called I was told that my bill was overdue. It was NOT. It was due the same day. Also, I was told by the automated service that the problem was on my premises. At least, the customer service rep and the technician did not make that mistake as they did last time I called. Lime Slime, Slow Flow or No Liberty whatever your name is I am waiting for Digicel to become available in my neighbourhood. Then I will celebrate the cutting of ALL TIES with your particular BRAND of annoyances.

    You people really think that a company will not celebrate milestones because some of their clients have service issues???? Think again, NOT ONE!!!

    You think that some Digicel customers may not have issues? Last year Digicel increased their rates and cut their data in half and had it at the same high price and did not tell their customer anything. I paid for a dongle package and when I called to have it activated it was then I learned that the rates had changed and what I spent could not give me my original 8gb of data. I had to go and spend more money to get it. I expressed my annoyance with the rep and told her in no uncertain terms that when the data out I done with them. True to form I was done.

    I have service now from FLOW without the landline, as I don’t need a landline. I have never had any issues and I am thankful for that. You will have issues regardless of who you are with, I think the key is the level of good customer service and their ability to resolve issues in a timely and acceptable manner. Service quality is Key.
