Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world.



The term “ICT” stands for Information and Communication Technology and includes hardware, systems and processes for creating, storing, managing and sharing information. Some elements of ICT have progressed so quickly that they have changed the lives of people dramatically. Some striking examples are the internet, mobile communication technologies, and innovations in broadcasting.

Widespread development of ICT in Papua New Guinea has been hampered by a significant shortcoming in the capabilities and availability of appropriate telecommunications services from Telikom PNG.This situation has resulted from a lack of ongoing investment and maintenance of the network infrastructure over the past decade and the absence of incentives to secure operating and management efficiencies.
