In a bid to give back to the people back home, Digicel Fiji Limited together with Hoirua ne Rotuma launched a Rotuman content channel at the Grand Melanesian Hotel last Wednesday.

The content includes ringtones and songs available through Digicel’s platform to the Pacific Region with the first content going live on Rotuma’s and Fiji’s mobile phones two weeks ago.

Hoirua ne Rotuma director, Abel Camillo said it was dedicated to ensuring Rotuman children had access to proper education and opportunities.

“I would like to thank the people and chiefs on Rotuma Island for their support towards sustainable development including Digicel Fiji and MobiMedia for their support towards education and their social responsibility towards our people on Rotuma Island through the content platform.”

He said without the original music from the musicians this would not have been possible.

“Musicians Larry Klote’s and Harry Tivaknoa’s songs have started live on Rotuma two weeks back.”

Digicel Fiji West manager, Jiu Daunivalu said Digicel remained committed to Fiji and Rotuma largely as part of the recent $70 million upgrade – 3G network expansions was spreading nationwide.

“Rotuma is expected to be on Digicel 3G+ by the end of the month. But because of boat schedules the upgrade has been a bit delayed. Soon Rotuma will be on par with the rest of the nation and the world enjoying superfast internet speeds on their mobile phones.

“The upgrade will improve our customers’ experience on Rotuma; it will boost business and education needs on the island.”

Rotuman musician Larry Klote, who sang Rotuman number one, hit song Sua Mea E Vaka said: “Rotuma needs the support of the outside world financially and spiritually, we need to give back something home,” said Mr Klote.
