Inkk Mobile in talks to offer 3G, passes 250,000 subs mark

26 May 2009

Fijian MVNO Inkk Mobile is in talks with Vodafone Fiji to offer third-generation (3G) services to end users. Although the service is currently only available to Vodafone’s post-paid users, Inkk hopes to offer the service to its pre-pay users as it looks to make itself ‘the Fijians’ choice’, says Inkk chief executive Paul O’Neile. The Inkk CEO is confident that ‘It will happen in the future,’ noting that the first phase of the company’s business rollout – to build up a solid customer base – has been completed; Inkk claims to have signed up around 250,000 subscribers. ‘The second phase is to provide data services. There has been a lot of misconception about Inkk being Vodafone … We are a separate entity but Inkk is using Vodafone’s network … it is much cheaper because we don’t have to invest into all the infrastructure,’ he said.
