More people are expected to have mobile connectivity in the next 3 to 6 months.

This was highlighted by the Attorney General and Minister for Communications, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum while speaking at the handing over of a Walesi setup box to the students of the Nasesevia Secondary School in the Highlands of Nadi.

Sayed-Khaiyum says there are about 300 sites in Fiji that do not have mobile phone connectivity.

He adds now the government will fund the towers and they get the mobile companies to put in their transmitters.

Sayed-Khaiyum also assured them that despite the economy being battered by COVID, they will continue with the free education, continue to fund the teachers’ salaries and make sure that it is not reduced or deducted.

Meanwhile, the students of Mulomulo Muslim Primary will now be able to access the Walesi platform after they were provided with a Set Top Box and a TV.

This brings the total number of schools connected to the platform to more than 60.
