PNCC's Commitment to Coverage

With over 40 years of experience, PNCC has played a pivotal role in developing Palau's national communications system. From its humble beginnings serving 200 customers in Koror, PNCC has evolved into a full-service telecommunications operator, connecting customers throughout the archipelago. According to the statement, now, PNCC is taking a leap forward in ensuring nationwide connectivity by embracing Lynk's technology.

Lynk's Sat2Phone Technology

Lynk's sat2phone technology, often referred to as "cell-towers-in-space," will provide Palauan residents with uninterrupted connectivity, regardless of their location. The initial beta service will be rolled out in the Southwest Islands and gradually extended to encompass all remote areas and Palau's Maritime Economic Zone.

According to Lynk, this ambitious initiative aims to bridge the connectivity gap, even in the most challenging regions, while strengthening network resilience in the face of natural disasters. Lynk will also be used to provide back-up services, when natural disasters hit and knock out the ground network, to enhance network resilience in this archipelago nation
