Telecom Cook Islands ups internet speeds, plans WiMAX tests

3 Apr 2006

Telecom Cook Islands (TCI) has launched a residential ADSL service on the island of Rarotonga, offering consumers two new packages. ‘Broadband Home Standard’ provides data speeds of 128kbps with a 700MB download limit, while ‘Broadband Home Plus’ offers a 256kbps connection and 2GB of pre-paid usage. The domestic ADSL service will be restricted to slower speeds between 8am and 6pm to give priority to TCI’s business customers. Wi-Fi internet access is currently provided by TCI at six hotspots on the island and work is continuing to expand Wi-Fi availability. TCI is also planning to hold WiMAX trials in the near future.
