TFL looks to complete NGN rollout by year end

26 Jul 2017

Telecom Fiji Limited (TFL) aims to complete the rollout of its high speed broadband next generation network (NGN) by the year end, The Fiji Sun cites TFL General Manager Strategy and Marketing, Sanjay Maharaj as saying. The telco has covered more than 70% of Viti Levu, the largest island in the Republic of Fiji, the site of the nation’s capital, Suva, and home to a large majority of Fiji’s population, recently installing two new network cabinets to bring fibre closer to people’s homes. The fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) deployment is continuing, Mr Maharaj said, with plans underway to install new cabinets between Rakiraki and Korovou. He also added that the Southern Cross cable that is coming through to Fiji via Samoa is expected to land in Fiji next year around March. Mr Maharaj said that once it has landed, there will be a cable to Savusavu to provide better service to the North. ‘TFL is in its planning process stages of rolling out fibre network from Savusavu to Labasa,’ he said, adding: ‘That would enable our North customers to experience high speed internet connectivity that we will be having here in Viti Levu.’
