The purpose of this program is to extend the coverage of advanced broadband wireless mobile communications services (at least 3G/HSPA+, 4G/LTE, or other advanced systems). The goal is to deliver reliable, high quality access to Internet and “smart” mobile applications and capabilities to as many PNG citizens as possible, where access to such services is not adequately available, and where existing licensed operators are unwilling or unable to expand their networks, due to commercial or other constraints.
There are three (3) types of Projects included in this Program:
- New BTS sites in areas currently with no mobile service; and
- Upgrades to existing 2G BTS sites.
