Telikom told to charge reasonable rates for services in East Sepik


EAST Sepik Governor Allan Bird has urged Telikom PNG officials to charge consumers reasonable rates for the services they are providing.
The company recently launched its 3G/4G LTE network services in East Sepik.
Bird urged the entity to maintain the services it was providing.
“We want reliable service, a service with reasonable rates charged, rates which are fair. We do not want rates that will change after two months,” he said.
Bird said Telikom must continue to make affordable its products and services to all market segments.
Maprik MP John Simon wants Telikom PNG to launch the new mobile in his electorate.
“I think you will make more money in Maprik then in Wewak,” he said.
“You will not go wrong by going up to Maprik. That is where the heart of Sepik is. That is where the economic hub of East and West Sepik is. You’ll have more than 100,000 people in Maprik who will use the network.”
Telikom’s chief technical officer Moses Tedemo urged locals to look after the infrastructure provided.
“Any infrastructure or equipment built or provided by Telikom PNG, it’s ours. Therefore, we must make it our responsibility to look after them. There is no other that can provide such infrastructure,” Tedemo said.
Telikom’s national retail manager, Amos Tepi, said Telikom PNG was a State-owned enterprise.
“Whatever income we generate from any form of service Telikom provides goes to the government to give services back to the people – health, school, road, bridges,” he said.
“That is why we need to use services provided by Telikom PNG.”
