For example, apart from the rugged terrains and mountainous regions, Telecommunication network expansion should be a service worth delivering to the people.
As it is now, Digicel signals are only accessible at Tapini station and its surrounding villages, The furtherest one can receive signals is Erume. Kerau and Sopu get faint signals only at certain points. Tolukuma is another spot in Goilala that enjoy the Bigger Better Network signals but that is all because of the Mine activity in that locality.
On the other hand, Telikom owned B Mobile is non existent. Tapini station and Woitape station has some visat satellite dish installations and operate using Telikads but the number of people lining up to use this service is so long it resembles long queues at an ATM at Hagen City or Lae City.
We can not even get EMTV signals in any part of Goilala. This is a National Television station and isn’t it supposed to be made available to us the people?
Apart from Radio Central – Gibi Ena Gadona – Signal, we can not get PNG FM signals and even FM 100 – information leader – signals in any spot in Goilala.
Digicel, Telikom, EMTV and FM and Long and Short Wave radio Frequency signals should be reachable and accesible as far as Guari, Bizoa, Enaugagave,Ganiawai, Ghivena, Kamulai, Kelevi, Koefa, Koilapo, Lobudono, Mariboi, Omuitu, Rapaula, Rupila, Taveve, Tonamena, Torula, and Zhake, Uluna, Ombole Tiviro, Ononge, Kambisea, Kulama, Chirime, Fane, Kone, Garime, Belavista, Yeme, Sindo and Mondo, Koruavu, Maini, Ita, Tuv, Laitata, Oni Sene, Iveiava, Sopu 1 and Sopu 2, Lov, Lore, Lamanaipi, Kileipu, Malava, Irai, Kioriv, Kunim, Kalom, Loloip, Erume, Karom, Kerau, Kataipa, Lavavai, Tavuniav, and Pilitu.
Information is POWER. And having services which enables people to enrich themselves with information to be able to make informed decisions is one vital ingredient that needs undivided support and attention.
