Fiji Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Statistics and Analyses 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Fiji - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Fiji hosts a relatively sophisticated communications infrastructure with the highest mobile and Internet penetration in the Pacific islands. It is the leading market to watch in terms of both 4G LTE and 5G development in this region.

In 2019 the Fijian mobile operators continue to heavily invest in 4G LTE and LTE-A technologies, and these networks now account for the largest share of mobile connections. Concentrating on the more highly populated areas, the operators are preparing for the next growth area of mobile data.

The mobile operators, which include Digicel Fiji and Vodafone Fiji also have 5G in mind and are preparing the networks to be pre-5G ready.

Fiji presents a challenging geographic environment for infrastructure developments generally, due to its population being spread across more than 100 islands. However, the majority of Fijians live on the two main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.

Fiji is well-served by 3 international submarine cable systems and in 2018 the Fijian government implemented plans to connect the two major islands via a domestic submarine cable system - and this will provide high-speed Internet access between the two.

It will also provide a more secure link between the two islands in times of emergency weather events like the regular tropical cyclones which often cause much destruction to this area. These natural disasters often destroy essential infrastructure including electricity and telecoms equipment.

Key Developments:

  • Fiji is demonstrating initial progress towards 5G readiness.
  • Fiji has substantial submarine cable infrastructure.
  • Fiji will benefit from improved satellite services from Kacific Broadband Satellites.
  • Pricing reductions and an increase in bandwidth availability have seen mobile broadband penetration increase over the last few years.
