This announcement was made by Attorney-General and Minister of Communications Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum following a meeting with Digicel Board Chairman Denis O’Brien in Suva yesterday.
A government statement said the AG emphasised the need for more expansive and robust telecommunications infrastructure to meet the increased demands from consumers for both greater wireless internet access and faster download speeds.
“Smart phones are becoming more prevalent throughout the country and that can mean faster and better access to information for the Fijian people. However, that is only possible if our telecommunications capabilities grow at a commensurate rate – and we look forward to working with Digicel to make that happen,” he said.
The AG and Mr. O’Brien went on to discuss specific areas of future development in Fiji’s telecommunications sector.
Digicel acknowledged their strong relationship with Government since their arrival to Fiji in 2008 and the AG thanked Digicel for their continued work in bringing high-quality mobile network services to Fiji.
