    I am not sure why this such a good thing, look at the quality of Claro after it Verizon sold out their Dominican interests. Here is an actual news link:

    I doubt the names will change, Altice is just a holding company.
    LOL, Orange only represents 1% of total revenue, imagine that, they paid $1.44B!

    Well I am a Claro customer so it won't affect me, I have a friend who has an Orange phone and Tricom internet... that will be interesting to see if either of her services changes for the better or worse.

    I don't think it will change a bit. Dominicans don't know anything about competition pricing. If anything they will increase their prices while proclaiming they have a better product and better company that isn't dominican

    Hopefully together with Tricom they can take market share from claro.
    Claro has high prices and **** service and needs more pressure from the competitors.
