A further investment of $US13.4 million by the telecom firm to upgrade 56 long-term evolution sites in the capital will also help accommodate the increased traffic bought by the influx of spectators attending game events.
Digicel CEO Maurice McCarthy said people would continue to feel the benefits after the Pacific Games have concluded.
"The beauty of this investment on the network is that it will benefit the citizens of Port Moresby long after the games are over, with faster and more reliable internet speed and consistent coverage," McCarthy said.
"It will also allow Port Moresby to handle many more large scale events, which have high traffic periods. In the past such events placed enormous pressure on the network's capacity.
"We are confident that this network upgrade will enhance the experience overall."
