Geographical Coverage

The Commission is responsible for issuing licences, orders, determinations and directions with regards to the geographical coverage, service deployment, key performance and quality of service requirements for operators.

Geographical coverage is expressed as a percentage of the population of the Solomon Islands, based on the population estimates set out in Appendix D of the Telecommunications Act (2009).

See the  Market Statistics page for more information on coverage statistics since 2009.

A map of mobile operators' towers is also available below.
