61 families in Nakavika village will no longer need to travel to Suva or to Namosi Secondary School to access internet services after Vodafone Fiji launched their community wifi today.

Nakavika Village Headman Iowane Sukanaisoro says the launch today is a milestone achievement for the village and the province of Namosi.

Sukanaisoro says connectivity has been an issue for them for a long time and now they can be connected to their families without leaving the village.

Nakavika Primary School Head Teacher, Luse Kacilala Hotchin says now students can access the internet at school and do their research rather than using $20 to travel to Navua or Suva.

She says they have been asking for this for a long time and today is a dream come true for the Nakavika community.

School Manager Mosese Vuakula says today signifies the hard work of the community of Nakavika for a long time.

He says during their days, accessing the internet was difficult but now their children will have the privilege of what they did not have.

Nakavika village is the first community in Fiji and the Pacific to have a satellite community wifi. They will be pioneering this innovation of broadband services.
