TAX FREE REGION CONNECTED WITH TELECOM
Telecom Fiji Limited announced the initiation of yet another strategic and long-term infrastructure enhancement project.
The company has embarked on a HighSpeed Telecommunications Optic Fibre Infrastructure deployment project spanning 90kms along the Rakiraki to Korovou domain along the Kings Rd on Viti-Levu.
TFL emphasised that this is a two-pronged expansion project which would predominantly provide much needed additional capacity and growth opportunities.
It would not only provide services to additional communities and businesses but also have greater capacity to meet the ever increasing demand for bandwidth and connectivity.
The commissioning of this enhanced optic fibre network would result in a paradigm shift in terms of connectivity for all Fijians. This enhanced capacity would essentially put Fiji on par with the developed countries in terms of its readiness for the next wave of superfast broadband internet advancement dubbed “5G”.
TFL chief executive officer Mothilal De Silva said: “While 5G networks are wireless in nature they would require high throughput fixed infrastructure to carry that internet traffic. Optic Fibre infrastructure has been proven to be the enabler of this much anticipated 5G services.”
The project has been contracted locally with overseas consultants providing technical expertise and on the job training to TFL engineers. The project is envisaged to be fully commissioned towards end of November 2017. Source: Telecom Fiji Limited
