Vodafone to bring 4G, 5G Network to PNG

 Vodafone PNG has partnered with SES to provide 4G and 5G high-speed mobile broadband services.

Both companies announced yesterday that the reliable high-speed data service will be delivered via SES’s O3b medium earth orbit (MEO) satellite constellation, which will further enable economic opportunities and bridge the digital divide in the world’s second-largest island.

Under this partnership, the O3b MEO satellite constellation will provide Digitec with high-speed mobile back haul services for five locations in PNG.

“Papua New Guinea’s mobile and internet market has enormous growth potential, but this has been hampered by geographical challenges, limited speed and connectivity choices.

We are pleased to partner with SES to provide reliable high-bandwidth mobile connectivity of up to 5G speeds delivered through their MEO satellites.

This connectivity will enable more people here to fully embrace the digital age,” Vodafone PNG Director Ivan Fong said.

“With our O3b constellation we’ve been connecting communities and industries around the world for almost a decade, positively impacting their lives and their businesses.

Our partnership with Digitec brings their customers with a reliable, high-throughput and low-latency solution, underscoring the value of our unique satellite connectivity.

We are proud not just to be an enabler of Digitec’s plans to bring more services and opportunities to the population of Papua New Guinea, but also to serve as the backbone for fuller participation in the digital era and greater digital inclusion,” SES Vice President Pacific Networks Sales John Turnbull said.

SES’s O3b system is the world’s only commercially successful non-geostationary satellite system and delivers low-latency, high-performance connectivity worldwide.

The fibre-like speeds enable the delivery of cloud computing applications and services to bridge the digital divide, while connecting communities and industries regardless of the remoteness of the location.
