With Telecom Fiji Limited’s first wave of Connect Public Wi-Fi zones launched the past week, plans are already underway to spread the reach to all across Fiji.
Telecom Fiji chief executive, Mothilal De Silva, said currently the zones are mostly spread across the Central and Western divisions.
“However, we are in the process of covering the whole of Fiji soon,” he said.
“TFL deployed these sites on a ripple strategy and under the 1st wave, we have extended coverage to include number of key public hot spots in parks, bus stands, shopping centers, banks and hospitals.
“We will announce the new service areas as soon as they are ready.”
Telecom Fiji has secured more than 150 sites that are now active Connect WiFi Hotspot Zones.
In addition to 150 public Wi-Fi sites, TFL had successfully rolled out nearly 200 hot spots in multiple leading hotels across Fiji.

Near future
Mr De Silva said in near future, a tourist can find promotional offers for closest hotels or city restaurants while browsing in a hot spot thanks to the Ad – injection services introduced by TFL.
“Before end of this year, tourists in the region can enjoy TFL Wi-Fi roaming facility using their home accounts,” he said.
“Now they can research local attractions, look up local events, load maps, post photos/ videos to Instagram. Undoubtedly these services will help boosting the tourism industry.”
Mr De Silva said they strongly believe that Fiji can be the Telecommunications hub in Pacific.
“TFL will forge a path that make sure Fijians are empowered digitally. To do this, we definitely need a collaborative effort across industry and Government. We are in the right track,” he said.
“As a leading ICT solutions provider in Fiji, Telecom Fiji is not only introducing latest in technology for the benefit and empowerment of the local Fijian people.
“TFL is also collaborating with Government and other stakeholders to promote Fiji as a tourist destination and as a destination of choice for ICT related investments like Call Centers and BPOs.”
