BUSINESS activities in Kolomola Village, Hograno district, Isabel province have been disturbed by telecommunication fault, it is reported.
Information reaching the paper says the fault has been going on for a month.
This has raised concerns among business entrepreneurs there whose business operations rely heavily on daily telecommunications service. Exports from the area is said to be among the worst hit.
Chief Gideon Kale from Kolomala Village said this matter needs to be addressed by responsible authorities.
“The telecommunication difficulty we are facing now has affected our daily business activities because there hasn’t any network coverage accessed by cell phones to simply relay of voice or data sender to receiver,” he said
Meanwhile, Mr Estermarh Teinody, a Buala Telekom staff said they have been aware of the matter and have reported it to the Our Telekom headquarter in Honiara.
He said the matter was considered, hence responsible officers from Honiara are expected to be in Isabel as of today.
Attempts to have comments from Our Telekom’s main office in Honiara were futile before the paper went to print last night.
