Unwired Fiji selects Motorola for WiMAX project

28 Apr 2009

Fijian wireless company Unwired Fiji, which is owned by i-Pac Communications, has inked a deal with Motorola under which the latter will design and deploy an end-to-end 802.16e-based WiMAX network to upgrade and provide increased capacity to the operator’s existing network in the country. As a result of the network coverage and capacity expansion contract, Unwired Fiji will be able to offer its customers a range of advanced broadband services in the hope of strengthening its position in the domestic market.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, Unwired Fiji launched a broadband fixed wireless network in October 2005. Unwired currently offers residential users internet access at speeds ranging from 64kbps to 1Mbps in the Suva and Lami areas of Viti Levu. The service operates in the 3.5GHz band using Navini Networks’ Ripwave wireless broadband network equipment, bypassing the need for a landline connection.
