PNG internet rates

10 percent of Papua New Guineans on Internet

National Information and Communication Technology Authority (NICTA) CEO, Charles Punaha said the internet penetration rate is very low compared to other countries in the region, and the world.

He said comparing Fiji, which has close to 100 per cent internet penetration, the biggest nation in the Pacific only has 10 per cent of its population accessing internet, but are paying much more for the service.  

Punaha said the high cost of doing business in the country and also the geography landscape dictates the cost of accessing the services.
