International submarine cable for Palau well underway
Out of necessity, and similar to other Pacific Islands nations, it is mobile services which have thrived in Palau. This is due to the difficult geographic environment which is spread across around 300 islands and is unsuitable for widespread fixed telephony infrastructure. In 2016 fixed broadband penetration sat at only around 6% while mobile penetration exceeded 110%, due to multiple mobile subscriptions.

3G services are provided in Palau over satellite with O3b Networks (now part of SES Networks) being a major provider. In 2016 both Palau National Communications Corporation (PNCC) and Palau Telecoms, which offers wireless broadband internet services, underwent capacity upgrades with O3b.

In recent times, there has been growing international scrutiny over the lack of formal telecoms regulations and a Regulatory body in Palau. This is in part due to the fibre-optic submarine cable which is being built and will link to Guam.

In 2016 Palau secured a loan from the Asian Development Bank to be used to connect to Guam as part of the wider SEA-US project. In 2017 the cable build-out is well underway and Flexenclosure was awarded the contract for building the landing station in Palau.

Overall, Palau offers a well-developed mobile sector which has been recently boosted by satellite network capacity upgrades as well as the submarine cable venture. Palau is one of the Pacific’s most successful small islands for mobile telecommunications connectivity.

Please note: information on Palau’s telecoms market can be difficult to obtain due to small size of the market, lack of competition and absence of a telecoms Regulator.
