Vodafone expands its network coverage
Vodafone Fiji’s chief executive officer, Pradeep Lal confirmed that in line with their expansion plans to further ease connectivity amongst all Fijians, 10 new sites have been commissioned across the country recently. “We have commissioned 10 new sites for our customers in the rural and island locations in Kadavu, Taveuni, Qamea, Vanua Levu and along the Rewa-Tailevu corridor. This will help our customers stay in touch with family and friends now with better connectivity,” Mr Lal said He said Vodafone will continue to further enhance its network coverage for the people so they can remain connected even if they are in remote islands and rural areas of the country.
Commenting on the expansion plans, he said: “We had identified some sites that required installation of new towers to enhance coverage. Now with the 10 new sites in place, this will increase network coverage in the identified areas.”
Provincial administrator for Kadavu Peni Tora said: “The two towers constructed have eased connectivity for the people. These two towers address the plight from the villagers of Kavala and Tavuki.” “People of Kadavu thank Vodafone Fiji for extending connectivity to the deprived areas and helping improve the livelihoods of all the people here.” He said more than 2000 kava farmers and fishermen can be constantly in touch with not only their families but their suppliers and this connectivity will allow the fast-flow of their commercial commodities. With 22 years of operations in the country, Vodafone continues to heavily invest in the network infrastructure with over $100 million being pushed into its development in the past three years, Mr Lal said.
