28 Jan 2022

Digicel announced on Thursday that it has restored ‘intermittent’ internet connectivity in Tonga for all customers, thanks to several satellite providers. Digicel Tonga CEO Anthony Seuseu said in a statement: ‘We are thrilled to get internet connectivity back up in the Kingdom. Apart from our pre-paid customers, we also managed to connect some business customers – ANZ, BSP and the National Reserve Bank of Tonga, Tonga Power, Lulutai Airlines, Air New Zealand and the Western Union.’ He thanked partners Telstra and Spark for making this possible by supplying satellite hardware and terminals powered by Intelsat bandwidth. SES and NovelSat have also helped Digicel in restoring connectivity.
