Local telecommunications company LIME is moving ahead with its disconnection of Sunbeach Communications for non-payment. The company issued a statement today stating that the High Court had ruled in its favour in the legal action which Sunbeach brought against it claiming that LIME was in breach of the Fair Competition Act. The following is the statement from LIME. “LIME took a decision to disconnect Sunbeach for non-payment of its debt and Sunbeach sought an injunction. LIME successfully defended the case brought by Sunbeach which claimed that LIME was in breach of the Fair Competition Act. LIME is pleased that the High Court has ruled in our favour. “LIME had been working closely with Sunbeach to try and resolve these difficulties and we agreed to a re-payment plan. We gave Sunbeach many months of extended credit to allow them time to raise finance. Sunbeach has not met its re-payment obligations and has made several promises to settle its debts but unfortunately to date, has failed to do so.  As a result LIME will have to disconnect services to them “LIME is happy to be putting this matter behind so that we can continue our focus on enhancing customer service, improving reliability and increasing speeds to our broadband customers.”
