Kiribati - Telecoms Market Overview & Statistics

Synopsis

Due to the limited level of market activity in this country, BuddeComm is now publishing this report on an "On Demand" basis. Please Contact Us for more information.

Kiribati’s telecommunications sector was liberalised with the formation of Telecom Kiribati Ltd and Telecom Services Kiribati Ltd (TSKL). Currently TSKL operates a mobile telephone network as well as traditional fixed line voice services. Telecom Kiribati is fully-owned by the government while TSKL is a privatised company. The telecommunications infrastructure is limited by the large distances involved; consequently not all the island groups have telecommunications services. New ISPs could possibly emerge in 2009. Fiji-based Digicel has applied to the Kiribati government to obtain a license to begin operating a mobile service in Kiribati. Please also note that this report is updated infrequently due to limited availability of information on the local telecoms market.
