£3 million from Falkland Islands Government to boost residents' broadband

A £3 MILLION investment from FIG (over three years) will improve current broadband provision for Falklands residents. It will mean broadband data quotas for Bronze packages and above (67% of subscribers) will double as well as a 33-44% data increase for Starter and Lite packages. Customer prices will increase by 10% for bronze and above. The changes will result in a 50% improvement in contention ratio (the number of users sharing the same bit of bandwidth at any given time) and will help to relieve congestion at peak times. Line speeds will be reviewed once it is understood how consumers are using the increased data allowance.
