Vodafone Cook Islands (Part 5): Everyday Connectivity Satellite Stories

    • Technology

Over the last decade, Vodafone and SES have taken the Cook Islands from high-frequency radio to high-speed broadband using the SES MEO satellite network. The next phase in the partnership deploys the advanced satellite constellation O3b mPOWER to provide fast and reliable 4G+ connectivity to the remotest part of the archipelago.
In the final episode of our five-part series, our host Kristina Smith-Meyer meets Kiwis-turned-Cook-Islanders Sam and Raniera as they explain how big a role the internet plays in their daily lives; for work, for education, for pleasure and for sharing their passions which include outrigger canoeing!
Featuring: 
Mac Mokoroa, Minister of Education for the Cook Islands
Sam and Raniera Ellison. To learn about the Cook Islands Canoeing Association, visit them on Facebook: facebook.com/CookIslandsCanoeing/
