The Government's “Northern Connectivity” Project which aims to make sure Fijians in the North have the ability to connect to fast internet speeds is on track to be completed in December this year.
Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says this initiative focuses on 40 schools and health centres in the Northern Division.
He says this project will bring reliable access to power, internet and ICT equipment to at least 20,000 Fijians in close proximity to these 40 sites.
Sayed-Khaiyum adds it will also enable other emergency portable satellite-based solutions for the deployment of appropriate assistance in times of disasters.
