Papua New Guinean-owned telecommunications company, Telikom, is regaining market share through its 4G LTE network.
On Thursday, the State-owned entity opened a new Kiosk at Port Moresby’s Vision City with the distributors of Oppo mobile phones.
The kiosk creates visibility for telikoms 4G LTE which has become a hit with younger consumers.
Its management says the internet services couldn’t be any faster or cheaper.
Telikom’s National Retails Manager, Amos Tepi says Telikom is moving with the younger market segment who demands information faster and cheaper.
“Our rate is cheapest at the moment compared with any of the other mobile companies in the country,” Tepi said.
The Vision City deal puts telikom in a strategic location to gain market share through visibility.
The Kiosk operates with Comserv, the distributor of Oppo Mobile devices whereby Telikom will provide the compatible SIM cards.
It’s understood that Telikom will concentrate on the network and not handsets cutting significant cost on device inventory and distribution.
Teilkom’s management aims to open kiosks around Port Moresby and throughout the country.
If the SOE succeeds, Telikom may gain a huge market share from younger customers by using existing infrastructures to roll out its 4G LTE network.
