Tonga cerebrates arrival of Fibre-optic connection

A formal ceremony was this morning held at Sopu-‘o-Taufa’ahau village to mark the arrival of the fibre-optic cable that connects Tonga to Fiji providing the Friendly Islanders with high speed broadband services.

The  soft launch was attended by the Prime Minister, Lord Tu'ivakano and his cabinet as well as some 200 guests.  

The 20Gbs connection is provided by the Fiji International Telecommunications Limited (FINTEL) and its communications manager Laisiasa Nakacea reportedly said, “FINTEL will be the gateway for communication between the two countries. For Tonga they will witness the introduction of high speed broadband … and a lot of other new services that will be introduced to Tonga on the high speed cable that we will be putting in today”.
