PAPUA New Guinea-registered mobile phone company, bemobile, says it will speed up the installation of its network in the western province of Solomon Islands.
The Solomon Star newspaper reported yesterday bemobile was building 13 more towers on the islands following its launch last Friday in Gizo by prime minister Danny Philip.
bemobile chief executive in the Solomons, Michael Ah-Koy, said they would increase their coverage in coming weeks.
 “You will see … we have launched our network in the western province,” he said.
“Over the next two weeks you will see a substantial expansion of this in the western province,” he added.
Ah-Koy said the company remained committed to fulfilling one of its key words, “Solid Na” in terms of the services they intend to provide in the Solomons.
Reports reaching the Solomon Star said bemobile engineers and technicians had been visiting various sites to survey for new towers.
Prime minister Philip described the rapid roll out of the network as “the icing on the cake for the industry”.
He was more than confident bemobile Solomon Islands’ coverage would help enhance western province’s prominence and leadership in the tourism sector.
“It is also my hope that other provinces will follow western province’s lead in this sector.
“We have a lot to share with the world – our natural beauty, which includes the unspoilt sandy beaches, rolling mountains and aqua-blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.
“bemobile Solomon Islands has brought the world closer to us and we in the rural areas to the world …  great opportunities lie ahead,” Philip said.
