Mobile service to Eastern Malaita

Bmobile-Vodafone are delighted to have launched a new tower on Tuesday 7th June for East Malaita.

This tower will now give the coastal area of East Kwarae full coverage. The tower is located on Leili Island and will help improve this regions coverage beaming signals right across the waters back in the populated areas.

A statement from the company said, this is the premium location for telecommunications coverage for this region and has been a site pinpointed by the company since 2010.

“The technical team are finally delighted that this site is now part of their network.

This launching of Leili Island shows the company’s commitment to this province as they are determined to ensure that Malaita remains a bmobile-Vodafone stronghold for their customer base.”

This tower is a forty meter construction and has been completed successfully under the guidance of the Projects manager Warren Pweka.

“This site has been in the planning since 2012 and it gives the technical team great pleasure to see planning going live into our network and providing new coverage.”

This tower now forms a second ring around the whole of Malaita to improve the coverage giving the Island redundancy paths for first time.

“This is a major step forward in telecommunications for the people of Malaita who now have second rings and high a capacity network provided by bmobile-Vodafone. This site will now improve the whole Islands services.”

The project team next will be travelling down to Western province to complete the new TRX site in the coming days.

Once this site is switched on in mid-June it will massively improve their data services with 3G coverage for the first time.

This service will be as good as the current 3G service their customers experience in Honiara, Malu’u and Auki.
