Kiribati gains internet connectivity boost via Marshall Islands

16 Oct 2012

The small Pacific nation of Kiribati has signed an internet connectivity deal with the National Telecommunications Authority (NTA) in the Marshall Islands, reports Radio New Zealand International. Under the deal, the NTA will provide Kiribati with internet access via a fibre-optic cable and satellite owned by the Majuro-based telecoms operator. The Marshall Islands firm signed a similar contract earlier this year with Bemobile of the Solomon Islands, expanding satellite connectivity services to the Solomons. General manager of the NTA, Tommy Kijiner Junior, said he hopes the two deals will lead on to his company sealing similar contracts with other nations including Nauru and Tuvalu.
