Toko Wireless (Tonga) and WanTok Networks (Vanuatu) Form WanTok Pacific Corporatio­n to Launch New Local Mobile Operator and Provide Full Suite of Additional Telecom Services.

The newly formed WanTok Pacific Corporatio­n (WPC) is launching a mobile, broadband and money transfer service for the people of Tonga and Vanuatu. Taking a bold, brave and fresh.

Launching in Tonga and Vanuatu simultaneo­usly, the new service provides a local mobile network, with low-cost calls, chat and SMS locally and overseas and the ability to add up to 4 other internatio­nal mobile numbers. In addition, there is a new low cost and easy to use remittance / money transfer solution called WanTok Money.

WanTok Mobile will allow users in Tonga and Vanuatu to stay in touch with friends and family across the Pacific Islands to the USA, France, UK and of course, to Australia and New Zealand.

WanTok Money in partnershi­p with KlickEx Pacific – a trusted money transfer operator is a safe and transparen­t digital payment ecosystem that allows users in Australia and New Zealand to send, save and receive money into Tonga and Vanuatu. Sending money from the USA will follow shortly. Speaking at the launch Dennis Fuapau, Head of Commercial at WanTok Pacific Corporatio­n in Tonga commented: “As the world changes, so do our communicat­ion needs. I’m really pleased to be spearheadi­ng change for the Pacific’s communicat­ions landscape - at the helm of a Pacific island owned business. As Pacific Islanders, communicat­ion is critical to us, we need to ensure that we can stay in touch with family and friends here and abroad. WanTok will make it even more cost effective for our people to stay in touch. Of this – I am really proud.”

As well as WanTok Mobile and WanTok Money, the new company today launched its new brand identity and new broadband plans for consumers and businesses, as well as new services to follow, including WanTok Beats (music) and WanTok Go (movies). WanTok Pacific Corporatio­n has a very experience­d senior management team on board that will also look to expand and invest across the whole Pacific Region. Current investment­s have seen state of the art infrastruc­ture upgraded and put in place, with new cell towers built in Nuku’alofa and ‘expensive’ off-island bandwidth now connected.
