Here is an interesting announcement for all Fijians who love their bandwidth. There is no word on when FinTel will make this technology available although they plan to cover Suva first and then eventually over 300 islands.

Dec 4 - Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALVR), the world's leading provider of wireless broadband solutions and specialized mobile networks, today announced that Fiji International Communications Limited (FINTEL), the country's international telecommunications provider, has selected BreezeMAX to offer WiMAX data services to the businesses and residents of the Fiji islands...

"We are pleased to be able to bring the '4G' services of WiMAX to the Fiji Islands," said Mr. Jone Wesele, Commercial & Business Development Manager of FINTEL.

Note: Wikipedia's article on 4G is a great way to get up to speed on wireless telephony acronyms and jargon.
