TFL fibre network upgrade underway in Fiji

Telecom Fiji Limited (TFL) is upgrading parts of its fibre network as part of a broader investment plan.

Local news outlet FijiVillage quoted the operator’s CEO Charles Goundar as saying that TFL planned to invest FJD180 million (US$88 million) across the next five years so that Fiji “remains at the forefront of ICT.”

The replacement of 48km of underground fibre-optic cable between Deuba and Korolevu is Phase One of TFL’s strategy to boost broadband connectivity on the Coral Coast.

TeleGeography reports that TFL’s plan will bolster its fibre-to-the-home/building (FTTH/B) deployment, which is aimed at reaching homes and “key business areas in major towns and cities” by 2024.
