Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 16 November 2019
“DEPUTY Prime Minister Manasseh Maelanga together with the Premier of Malaita Province Daniel Suidani and the Australian Deputy High Commissioner, Sally Anne Vincent officially opened the Auki Cable Landing Station for the Domestic Network, Friday.
“The Cable Landing Station at Auki is a critical piece of the Solomon Islands Domestic Network infrastructure, housing the Auki end of the 730km submarine fibre optic cable that links Auki up with Honiara, and Honiara with Sydney and the rest of the world.
“The Solomon Islands Domestic Network, which also connects to Noro and Taro, will transform internet connectivity in Solomon Islands.
“The cable is designed to provide a level of internet capacity more than 6,000 times greater than current internet usage in Solomon Islands.
“This will significantly enrich the digital environment, assisting tech enterprises and entrepreneurs, and working to transform the way Solomon Islanders access education, health and government services.”
