Fibre Optic Cable lands in ARoB

On a low key note, the landing in Arawa was witnessed by PNG DataCo Limited representatives and Arawa Town Mayor Augustine Barkson and Deputy Mayor Genevieve Korokoro. Both Mr Barkson and Ms Korokoro have been instrumental in the AROB part of the project. They say there is a sense of interest shown by the public towards the arrival of the cable and its benefits.

“We are fortunate to have this infrastructure and we will continue to educate our people about the opportunities the infrastructure will bring,” Ms Korokoro said.
