Description Contents Additional details

Even though Papua New Guinea has a relatively advanced telecom network compared with many other developing nations, tele-density and fixed-Internet penetration remains very low as nearly 90% of the population lives outside the major cities.

In mid-2011 Digicel was granted new licenses by the new telecoms and ICT regulator NICTA allowing a second fixed-line operator in the country. Meanwhile, a national broadband plan is being developed in 2011 to meet the needs of the developing exporting industries.

The uptake of the two mobile operators Digicel PNG and B-Mobile has increased rapidly since the late 2000s. Both operators now have 3G/CDMA networks in 2011.
