The KiLGA’s Executive Board had a meeting with ATHKL’s top officials at the company’s office in Bairiki on 25th November, that focused on telecommunication services by the company on the outer islands.

The ATHKL team, led by the CEO, Mr. Kamleshwar Sharma, reported that his company has been given approval by government to upgrade telephone and internet services on Abaiang, Marakei, North Tarawa, Onotoa and Maiana. Plans for the remaining islands are awaiting a study carried by the Ministry of Communication, Transport and Tourism Development, funded by the World Bank, that will determine the work required to establish or upgrade the services there. Following the completion of the study, government will invite bids to undertake the work.
