Avaroa Cable Ltd has announced the signing of a $1.2m supply contract with Australia’s Data Exchange Network to provide the Cook Islands with two state-of-the-art cable landing stations for the Manatua Cable.
The major shareholder of Bluesky Cook Islands believes the company will maintain its dominance despite government’s plan to end the monopoly on the market.
The local telecommunications company is promising better internet service for its customers after adding more capacity to its system.
Bluesky has embarked on a massive project to roll out fibre internet connections to the door of Rarotonga and Aitutaki homes, so families can take advantage of the speed and capacity of the new undersea cable.
Four Cook Islanders are to be included in a research team embarking on an expedition to explore the seabed near Aitutaki this month.
