Fijians in the Northern Division will soon be able to access faster and reliable internet services.
This after government today announced it will be pressing ahead with its “Northern Connectivity” Project.
In his national budget address, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the project is aimed at making sure that Fijians in the North have the ability to connect to fast internet speeds.
He says the initiative focuses on 40 schools and health centres in the Northern Division and is on track to be completed by December this year.
