  • As long as it takes. Thanks for the compliment. January 5, 2018 - CEO was reported to have worked for less than 5 hours. P&E Manager - MIA Comptroller - 6 hours AO - 6 hours
  • Let's see what 2018 brings us. Thank you for your thoughts, I respect them and hope for the best for this Nation, segregated or otherwise.
  • I respect your views Kinen but instead of holding the Nation accountable, shouldn't we hold the leadership accountable instead? Let us young, the next generation, hold the leadership into account and respond by influencing our generation and the ne…
  • Update: January 4, 2017 - CEO over 4 hours of work so it seems like a resolution from the CEO may be in effect. As for the P&E manager, seems like he was a no show. Others have been accounted for.
  • biz e and kinen, if it is only money and segregation that you want then I suggest you begin by pointing your guns in the right direction by starting small. Congress has passed the bill to open up the telecom market to competition so instead of allo…
  • Happy New Year to all forum members!!! May this year be a prosperous and safe year for all those we care for and even to those who are resistant to a better Micronesia. Given time, ignorance can can change to enlightenment. Attendance update: Ye…
  • I truly believe we Micronesians have grown beyond the negative mentality of segregation. The only way to move forward is by working together with our current leaders or with the newly elected leaders who are motivated to exact change that is benefic…

  • butterfinger, FSMTC has been stealing customers money in Yap, Chuuk, and Kosrae for the past several years. They are charging customers for ADSL rates for speeds that are unattainable and continue to get away with it. Perhaps all things will be be…
  • Okay, it's been 6 days enjoying the Christmas holidays but I didn't want to end the week without sounding off on this topic. So, you may have noticed that I changed the title of this discussion to include the management which I believe is only fitt…
  • Good morning Red Snapper, unfortunately, it is not in my nature to let things go. Individuals such as these shouldn't believe they are above reproach just because they think they are the technological gurus of the FSM. There are more young intelli…
  • Sorrow, I would agree with you if not for the fact that there is no longer a Chief of Operations for FSMTC. This along with the other fact that the other HQ managers do not have a history of good attendance serves me with little confidence and sec…
  • I like what you are saying TruthIsThat. These individuals should be accountable for their actions as well as any other if's and but's that pertain to their duties, responsibilities, and perks.
  • Okay, word for the day is "Accountability". This is basically what this thread is all about. You should be accountable for your actions, good or bad. So from what I see, it's mostly bad at this time. Hopefully with my continued pestering, the ma…
  • Here is one more thing to note. This is one organization that is very unusual. If you observe continuously, you will notice that most of the FSMTC management actually do not stick to a strict attendance guideline. As they say, abuse and corrupt…
  • Ok, what I am trying to convey here with this thread is a systematic abuse of power. In spite of the fact that contract CEOs are exempt, it does not necessarily mean abandonment of duties and most especially in the form of attendance. Chief Execut…
  • 12/19/2017 - Crossed paths with Mr. President at 7:45 am by AMCRES service station. - Still waiting for word on FSMTC CEO arrival or not. - Ok, CEO reportedly clocked in only 3 h…
  • 12/19/2017 - I am informed that the CEO was a no show this afternoon.
  • As a public figure in a public corporation, once the CEO accepted his role as the top manager for FSMTC, he should accept the fact that his actions will be publicly scrutinized. Shape up on attendance and this thread will stop. The public deserves…
  • 12/19/2017 - I am informed CEO punched in at around 10:00 am this morning. - I crossed passed with Mr. President at Palm Terrace before 8:00 am this morning. Mr. President takes it two days in a row.
  • Alrighty then, I've just been informed CEO finally reported to work around 3ish pm today, 12/18/2017. Unfortunately, we don't know whether he is physically there or driving around like he did last week.
  • Okay, I'd like to continue this thread by asking anyone with knowledge of the CEO's attendance to email me on a daily basis with regards to his daily attendance. This basically provides support for my accusations on his callous attitude towards att…
  • So get this, Palau just rocketed past FSM with the activation of its Fiber this month while Chuuk and Yap stood idly by waiting for what should have been a simple process of having OAE take over bandwidth wholesale. So not only is Palau overtakin…
  • Thank you TruthIsThat for the post above. It is interesting to see how much Palau believes the significance of fiber connectivity is to their country. Furthermore, I believe it is commendable to see they are actually putting remnants of rope from …
  • That is very unfortunate Aqualen. I have it under good advisement from very reliable sources that the new CEO for FSMTC has been lobbying the President for quite some time now to change certain aspects of OAE and related World Bank conditions which…
  • All will be revealed once liberalization commences.
  • Sinbad, as I have stated previously, it is an unfortunate fact that the chairman is the CEO's in-law. I have been informed that he was disclosed several abuses of corporate policy by the CEO yet did not follow through on any action. In our FSM cul…
  • You people have such low expectations regarding FSMTC. I honestly believe that FSMTC can make millions in net operating income if a proper rate strategy is put in place. That said, it is due to the unwillingness of the CEO to put in his full 80 hr…
  • butterfinger, unfortunately, you will continue to experience issues until your fiber link is activity and even then, you may continue to suffer issues. As a long time customer for FSMTC in Pohnpei, I will tell you that fiber has brought speed but i…
  • Below is an excerpt from the document TruthIsThat posted above. In the bold and underlined section, it states that the corporation has been experiencing a loss for the last 9 years. Well, shouldn't that be expected when the current CEO does not re…
  • Yes Sinbad, we are all sinners, some more so than others.
  • Sinbad, I copied the below from a previous post. As you can see from, there are figures showing loss. As for the board member boasting about Pohnpei and Chuuk making profit, let us see some figures. All in all, FSMTC is one corporation serving…
  • Butterfinger, you are correct in your assessment. From what I have been told, every cell phone call has to go through Pohnpei no matter where you are located. If you Yap finally has 3G or is upgrading your 3G, it will definitely impact calls as yo…
  • xctms, while I do agree with you that the salary is low considering other Telcos salaries one must consider the fact that FSMTC is a monopoly therefore it should be a given that this corporation would be a continuing success and a flagship model. T…
  • Yes Sinbad, you are probably right however I also believe it is the inaccessibility of these funds at the state level created the driving force behind this independence movement.
  • @RichardAndrewClark, I commend you on bringing up a sensitive topic that pretty much needs to be addressed. Yes, the matter of donations is a big issue and one that is rampant through out the FSM. In all seriousness and no offense to any particula…
  • Kinen, it is exactly that type of mentality that allows corruption and abuse of power to flourish in this Nation of ours.
  • Kinen, it is exactly that type of mentality that allows corruption and abuse of power to flourish in this Nation of ours.
  • Kinen, LeBron deserves to get paid his millions. Please don't compare him to the CEO for FSMTC, it is a total given why LeBron would have a higher salary than trump.
  • xectms, I am with you on all but one of the items you stated which is the last but not least one. As documented in another post, since 2012, FSMTC has been on a downward spiral. The huge losses began when the new management took over and seems to …
  • IronYouth, it seems like you are dead set on your opinions and there is no way to dissuade you from them even though you have been provided relevant facts.
  • SerekinNoufich, if you want to resort to calling names then you are the stupid one. You expect to secede without any sort of negative repercussions? First of all, the trust fund is the FSM's, Chuuk did not invest its money in it, the Nation did. …
  • Not to seem negative but looking at it from a purely technical perspective, wouldn’t Chuuk automatically forfeit all its rights, including their portion of the trust fund since technically, Chuuk would be abandoning the Nation?
  • Basic Rules of Parliament, a member cannot unilaterally decide on its own a sensitive decision that would affect the party as a whole. Chuuk can decide to vote for secession however the final decision for Chuuk to actually secede is if 2 more State…
  • IronYouth, I strongly believe Chuuk State has the legal right to vote on whether it wants to secede from the Nation, don't get me wrong on that however once Chuuk does actually vote to secede. Then and only then can the Supreme Court intervene prov…
  • Ok, this is probably starting to sound like a broken record but I would not be supporting this discussion if I were to not report back that the new CEO has decided to stop warming his chair in the CEO office of FSMTC. In all seriousness, how does o…
  • IronYouth, can you identify specifically where in the Constitution it actually states that secession from the FSM is a possibility? I am not for nor am I against secession however we need to be practical when it comes to ideas that confuse the publ…
  • Yes, it is unfortunate. I believe the pretense behind the creation of this foreign investment was to avoid foreign entities from competing with existing local services that our local businesses are providing. Regrettably, this is no longer the cas…
  • mickjagger, during those years, foreign investment was strictly controlled by the National Government. Presently, foreign investment is controlled by the State Level which has caused havoc in the system and has allowed foreigners to compete against…
