Trading as Solomon Islands Rural Link we provide solutions for remote area communications suitable for individuals, companies and communities, including low cost VSAT broadband, Wi-Fi wide area networking and FM broadcast systems. We are licensed to provide telecommunications services in Solomon Islands.

E-inclusion: We understand that bridging the digital divide in the Pacific requires more than technology. We therefore work closely with rural communities, stakeholders and partner organisations to provide training, capacity development, applications, content and linkages for sustainable community access.
