Internet Connection

PacRICS and disaster management

The Government of Tonga has commissioned a dedicated PacRICS (Pacific Rural Internet Connectivity System) system to handle communications for the investigation and search and rescue effort. PacRICS is the SPC/Australian Agency for International Development (AusAid) project designed to provide affordable Internet connections to rural and remote villages using a VSAT (very small aperture terminal) satellite system.
