Wallis & Futuna Islands - 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.

Service Des Postes et T Télécommunications (SPT) provides all telecommunications and postal services for the islands. SPT is partnered by France Telecom’s France Cable & Radio (FCR). Wallis Island received a satellite telephone link in 1989 and has been connected to the Internet since 1998. Australia television broadcasts are available via satellite transmission. SPT launched a new fixed switching centre in Futuna, which enables SPT to be able to provide all the people of Futuna with a fixed telephony service. Please note this report is updated very infrequently and that very few statistics are available due to limited availability of information on the local telecoms market.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
