Phase One Of ATH Kiribati Launched

Amalgamated Telecom Holdings Kiribati Limited (ATHKL) has launched phase one of the 3G and 4G wireless communications and broadband services in Kiribati this week.

ATH which initiated operations in Kiribati in June this year, began the process of improving telecommunications and ICT services.

ATHKL chairman Arun Narsey said their focus was to bring about improvement in telecommunication services to  the nation’s government ministries, businesses and consumers.

Mr Narsey said the improvements paved the way for opportunities for sustainable development in Kiribati and most importantly would bridge the rural-urban and outer-island gap.

He said: “The launch of Amalgamated Telecom Holdings Kiribati Limited network will bring increased stability, reliability and availability in telecommunications to ensure that the people of Kiribati are connected with each other and Kiribati is connected to the world.

“Our objective is to improve the customer experience by a quantum leap. To achieve that, we have strategically deployed technologies, services and content.”

Mr Narsey also stated ATHKL would remain steadfast in its commitment to deliver improved products, solutions and services for a connected, sustainable and prosperous Kiribati.

ATHKL is also currently working on commissioning a high-speed low latency Internet connection before the end of the year.

The next phase will be completed in early 2016. It will see the expansion of 10 new wireless cell sites in Kiribati and outer islands.
