According to Vodafone these remote and rural communities which were typically beyond the reach of traditional network coverage benefit from this.

The solution was state to offer a simple and convenient way to connect remote areas and offices to the internet.

Vodafone would add value by bundling phone system with this solution, so businesses, government offices, schools and health centres in these remote areas could connect and communicate.

Vodafone’s chief commercial officer Ronald Prasad said in today’s digital age, it was important that every individual had access to internet.

“As an essential services provider, Vodafone continuously strives to bring innovative and cost-effective solutions to connect people, businesses, and communities, even in the hard-to-reach remote locations,” he said.

“We continue to invest in solutions, so all Fijians can benefit, take advantage of innovation in digital technology and improve their lives.

“The solution is scalable and can be tailored to suit household use, community use and generate business.”

Vodafone had deployed this solution in the highlands of Namosi to connect remote communities and based on the success, this model was now being replicated across other communities.
