SpeedCast International has been selected by bmobile-vodafone Solomon Islands (bmobile-vodafone) to upgrade its mobile back-haul network to support 3G data services in the Solomon Islands.
SpeedCast’s platform will support the upgrade of the existing 2G services to a new mobile 3G network for the three main urban areas of the Western Province on the Solomon Islands.
This new network will double the current capacity to support 2G and 3G voice and data services for these industries and the local population. To further enhance the mobile data experience, SpeedCast is deploying this service through a high throughput, low latency O3b network, which has been used for all data services on the island since 2014.
This network upgrade comes as the demand for new 3G data services in the Solomon Islands has increased significantly over the last year. SpeedCast’s cellular backhaul platform will ensure bmobile-vodafone will be able to respond to these increasing data requirements.
