BlueWave Wireless ready to deliver commercial WIFI
BlueWave Wireless says it has full permission to start delivering commercial WIFI across Samoa, after having its free school wifi programme put on hold earlier this year.
In a statement, BlueWave Wireless Chief Operations Officer, Togisala Tony Sua Leota, said his company has the “green light” to work with Kacific Satellite Company to bring wireless internet connections to rural areas.
The company, formerly known as Netvo Samoa, intends to connect wifi to households, churches, businesses and other locations in 2021.
Togisala said the Office of the Regulator has reviewed BlueWave’s application, and that the company is compliant with the Samoa Telecommunications Act.
“BlueWave Wireless is excited that we can now move forward with our business commercial Wi-Fi expansion in Savaii and eventually to other rural and remote areas in Samoa,” Togisala said.
Comments are being sought from the Regulator, Gisa Fuatai Purcell.
Togisala says his vision is to “bring fast, high-quality broadband access at an affordable cost to rural and remote areas of Samoa,” and “bridge the digital divide” between rural and urban communities.
BlueWave Wireless is a locally owned company, and intends to bring wireless internet connections to parts of Samoa that struggle with connection like Manono, Apolima and parts of Upolu and Savaii.
“BlueWave Wireless is looking forward to making accessing internet and online resources easier and affordable for all Samoans,” Togisala said.
“Our team here at BlueWave Wireless would like to thank our Samoan people in Samoa, and from around the world for your support over the last few months.
‘We wish all our supporters and Samoan people around the globe a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”
