An ICT revolution in Papua New Guinea

A quiet revolution is taking place in Papua New Guinea which promises to bring about massive development to our beloved country.This is the development of what is known as PNGARNet, short for Papua New Guinea Academic and Research Network, which is being spearheaded by our universities, in particular the Divine Word University in Madang.PNGARNET, set to be launched next month, is a company wholly-owned by the PNG Vice-Chancellors Committee.PNGARNET was formed with the express purpose of facilitating the efficient cost-effective delivery of Internet services to Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) and research in PNG so that PNG tertiary students can receive a world-class education.Potentially, all those organisations, which are part of the Office of Higher Education (OHE) in PNG, can become involved in PNGARNET.
