Unwired Fiji to spend USD264,000 on WiMAX expansion

30 Aug 2013

Fijian wireless broadband provider Unwired Fiji is spending FJD500,000 (USD264,278) to expand its ‘4G’ WiMAX network expansion in the country, Fiji Village reports. Unwired Fiji corporate sales manager Charlotte Taylor says that upgrade works will result in an improved data experience for customers. The firm is currently undertaking phase two of its expansion programme – expected to be completed in September – with the third phase of expansion works due to start in November.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, in November 2012 Unwired Fiji claimed to be the first telco in the country able to offer ‘4G’ technology. At an information event held by the firm, Ms Taylor said Unwired was the first firm to provide portable ultra-high speed broadband internet access, from desktops to laptops and from tablets to smartphones and other mobile devices with Wi-Fi connectivity. ‘It has the ability to transfer more data over longer distances and with WiMAX we get faster speed with a lot more capacity,’ she said. At launch, Unwired Fiji’s new service was accessible in Suva, Nausori, Lami, Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka and Ba.
