The OPT-NC offers the best possible service in terms of access to very high-speed wireless internet (THD). 4G technology, which is at the heart of the wireless internet development strategy, enables New Caledonia to be on a par with ultra-connected countries and support the development of the digital economy on a local level.
As the fourth generation of the standard mobile technology, 4G enables the offering of better speeds and added value services.
Very High-Speed Wireless Internet Everywhere and for Everyone
The OPT-NC continues to roll out very high-speed wireless internet, meeting significant challenges in the process:
- Increase the number of mobile sites to reduce the number of dead zones by extending its network beyond the 95 % of the population already covered.
- Ensure better wireless speed by increasing network density in heavy traffic areas, by strengthening the 3 G network and rolling out 4G on 100 % of its sites by the end of 2021
- Meet the needs of new digital uses (streaming, video on demand, ...).
Mobile Network Coverage Map
The roll out of 4G technology is continuing...
The OPT-NC is continuing its commitment to deploy 4G, with an equipment target of 100% by the end of 2021. This was the case at the end of 2019 with 72,4% of the mobile fleet equipped with 4G. Almost 110 extensions remain to be completed by 2021
Experiments will increase in the area of the Internet of Things. Therefore, the OPT-NC will acquire a network core dedicated to the management of relays and connected things.
