Marshalls businesses seek compensation for email failure

6:02 pm on 11 September 2007

Businesses in the Marshall Islands want compensation after disruption to their email services over the last three weeks.

The call comes after the Marshalls' Internet Protocol address was blocked when it was caught up with a spamming drive.

The President of the Chamber of Commerce, Jack Niedenthal, says he has communicated with the telecommunications authority, but has heard nothing back.

"I, as president of the Chamber in a letter to the manager of the telecommunications authority, I said they should give us the month of August for free because its been nothing but headaches, but of course its a monopoly here. They don't have to do anything."
