Wireless Pacific promises lower mobile rates

12 May 2005

Fijian firm Wireless Pacific has promised to provide mobile services at rates lower than those recommended by the country’s Commerce Commission, if its application for a licence is accepted. The Commission has cut mobile-to-mobile per minute call rates from FJD1.73 to FJD0.87, effective from next month, but Wireless Pacific will reduce these further to FJD0.69 by June 2006 and FJD0.52 the following year. The newcomer, which submitted its application last month, is owned by the Motibhai Group (32.5%) and Colonial Group (32.5%), with the remainder held by an unnamed American group (30%) and Thomas Underwood (5%). Another would-be operator, Pacific Connex, applied for a licence last month.
