The company said that this would expand to areas where, previously, there was no access to telecommunications services.
 
In a statement, Digicel said it was embracing a further rollout of additional 3G and 4G coverage into rural PNG.
 
Chief executive officer Colin Stone said Digicel would continue to invest into rural communities, upgrading and expanding coverage past the current 80% of the population.
 
More than 170 Digicel towers would be upgraded to new technology, providing wider 3G and 4G digital services than had ever been seen before in the country.
 
"These upgrades are not just about improvements to existing communications but rather new coverage to 65 places, new villages and communities in the country, not currently served today," Stone said.
