Digicel Tonga upgrades network in outer islands

17 Oct 2022

Digicel Tonga CEO Anthony Seuseu revealed last week that the operator has invested TOP500,000 (USD199,047) in new telecommunications equipment to improve connectivity in the outer islands. According to local news outlet Matangi Tonga, Digicel is upgrading its microwave links on Kao Island to provide an improved data experience on the Ha’apai and Vava’u island groups, after the domestic cable was severed by the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano eruption and subsequent tsunami in January. Digicel notes the network upgrade will help return capacity in the outer islands to previous levels.
