While the link is up, DataCo wishes to advise the public that its engineers will be conducting tests on the link for about one month before some trial traffic on the link. Paul Komboi,managing director for DataCo PNG said: “The connectivity is a milestone for the country where internet connectivity is concerned.
“We are excited about the link that is up now and following tests and final checks and commissioning, we are on track to have commercial services on by January 2019.”
