Telecommunication on the Fijis

Compared to the European Union, the Fijis is massively lagging behind in the development of telecommunications. Under the country code +679, there were a total of 1.11 million connections in 2018. Among them were 1.03 million million mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 1.2 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person.

In the expansion of broadband Internet connections, the Fijis is back. Around 50% of all residents have access to the Internet. Approximately 1% have their own fast Internet connection, which is at least faster than the previous ISDN (more than 2048 kbit/s).

With about 21,739 webhosts, the Fijis is below the world's average by population.
