Work underway to expand communications in Tonga

From , 6:01 am on 26 January 2022

Authorities in Tonga are working with local telecommunications companies to expand network capacity in the kingdom after the catastrophic volcanic eruption and tsunami which killed three people and impacted on tens of thousands in the country.

Water, food and shelter are still the priority in the recovery with at least 150 people from the most affected outer islands relocated to the capital.

With me is the speaker of the legislative assembly Lord Fakafanua.
