Guyanese people pay more for poor services

According to data published by the Venezuelan Finance Observatory (OVF), the services category was the category with the highest inflation, with 12.4% for the month of April.

Faced with this constant rise in the prices of services, Guyanese assure that a major portion of their income goes into paying the bills. However, their efficiency is negligible.

Pedro Zarabia noted that the amount of electricity payments is currently quite high, so what previously could pay for several months is now only enough for one.

“We spend more than half because I also have to pay for water,” he said of his income.

As one of the residents affected by the failures in piped drinking water supply and internet, Leonis Rosen said that “they are paid but they are not useful.”

In the case of communication services, inflation reached 1.9%, according to the OVF.

Consumers were advised that the tariffs of mobile operators “grow every month”, so they should try as much as possible to be able to cover them.

No service improvement

In April the Cantav bill came for José at 260 bolívars “and before that he was paying a hundred more.” In addition to the fact that with the collection of the sanitary landfill of Corpoilec exceeded 200 bolivars, which is also reflected in this.

For his part, Felix Gonzalez recalled that because of the failures in Cantv he decided to subscribe to another company to have fiber optic internet in his home.

“Without toilets, electricity came at 275, but with toilets it reached 400,” he said.

Furthermore, some highlighted that fixed telephony bills are “becoming very expensive”, despite the fact that they do not even use the lines. Especially the elderly lament that it becomes more and more difficult to cover it every day.

Karina Barrios said, “By the grace of God someone is okay (…) It’s very difficult.”

Delinquent users in caroni

In a recent interview with PRIMICIA, Daniel Valenzuela, president of the Bolívar State Hydrological Agency (Hidrobólívar), assured that crime has decreased in relation to drinking water service.

In the case of the commercial sector, he remarked that the rates for this service have not increased.
