Internet connectivity challenges are not unique to just Papua New Guinea. ADB and Kacific’s satellite project aims to improve internet connectivity across the region, especially in remote areas of small island nations in the Pacific and larger ones like Indonesia and the Philippines.

Satellite technology is an excellent way of providing connectivity for island nations like Papua New Guinea with rugged terrain and dispersed populations. Connectivity through Kacific 1 is helping Papua New Guinea to improve judicial services using electronic-based systems. Other government offices in the country are expected to adopt similar innovative approaches and modern technologies.
