Biukoto said 5G will revolutionize the way we experience connectivity.

“Faster internet speeds, lower latency, and support for a massive number of connected devices will enhance entertainment, communication, productivity, and lifestyle applications.”

“Whether it’s streaming high-definition content, enjoying seamless online gaming, or interacting with smart home devices, 5G will provide a superior user experience.”

She said businesses will also benefit significantly from 5G with improved connectivity, faster data transfer speeds, and lower latency which will enable innovative solutions, optimized processes, and improved productivity.

“From high-quality video conferencing to quick file transfers, 5G will transform the way businesses operate.”

“5G is not just about faster internet speeds. It is about unlocking new possibilities, transforming industries, and improving lives. Vodafone is committed to bringing the full potential of 5G to Fiji, and we look forward to the exciting future ahead.”
