Fiji Times is reporting that Fiji has got it's first licensed VoIP Provider VoiceNetIP (Fiji). The License to VoIP has been in the work for some time and as usual there are some people that did not get the license first.
Fiji's first licensed VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) service provider, VoiceNetIP (Fiji) Limited, yesterday announced it would start operations in a fortnight's time.
Company director Joeli Kalou said after three years of waiting, the company given the VOIP license intend to bring maximum benefits and savings to business and the people of Fiji.
Unwired Fiji chief executive John Pollock said based on the consultations with regulators, the licence awarded to VoiceNetIP was not fair.
"Unwired Fiji has been advised that no licenses have been issued and no will be until the compensation mediation between Government and ATH (Amalgamated Telecom Holdings) resolved.
Unwired Fiji has been advised by Government we will be among the first licenses issued, said Mr Pollock
Interim Commerce Minister Taito Waradi could not be contacted last night. However, last August Mr Waradi said the State would go ahead with issuing VoIP licences to entities whose applications made the mark.
Mr Kalou said the company was issued a license last week.
