Bemobile v's Digicel

Great to see our company bemobile winning the bid to supply mobile services in Solomon Islands. Does this mean they have given up in PNG? Their new contract requires them to bring coverage to 81% of our neighbours. Guess we would have been happier if they got anywhere NEAR that coverage at home in PNG?

Definitely a loss for the people of Solomons. Unfortunately the ones who made the decision to award Bemobile the license really did not have the people in mind. As usual other factors have influenced their decision.
