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.
