Vodafone and TCC sign deal

Tonga Communications Corporation (TCC) has signed a strategic partnership deal with Vodafone Fiji today at Vodafone’s headquarters in Suva.

The partnership deal is one of the attempts by TCC to resolve challenges it face against its network system.

Fiji Vodafone will assist the Tongan communications company so that it can provide high standard and affordable services to its customers.

The TCC Chair, Larna Aloma Johansson was in Fiji to sign the deal.

She said: “There have been many challenges for us. Perhaps may be the most has been in the area of the network system and providing for the people of Tonga an opportunity to be able to communicate with each other nationally as well as internationally”.

In 2013 Vodafone Fiji recorded about $190million in revenue compared to about $170m in 2012.

Tonga Communications Corporation is a 100% Tongan owned company. In 2013 it made an overall profit of TP$2 million representing an increase of 31% over the previous year.

“TCC operates 2.75G and 3G Mobile as well as 4G Communications networks supporting the very latest in multimedia and mobile Internet services.

“Its local coverage spans all island groups of Tonga including the Niuas, while International Roaming Services are also provided across global countries.

 “The company also invested in securing bandwidth to Tonga via a submarine cable, triggering the single largest infusion of International Bandwidth to Tonga”.
