Island Telephone and Engineering

Next Generation Network

Island Telephone and Engineering (IT&E) plans to expand high-capacity broadband services to the Territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands by upgrading the existing network serving remote and underserved areas. The project intends to upgrade local island backbone infrastructure and replace the existing inter-island transmission system, utilizing fiber, 3G wireless, and WiMax technology. The project expects to directly connect 403 anchor institutions, including community colleges, K-12 schools, libraries, health care facilities, and public-safety organizations. Network speeds from 1.2 Gbps for microwave to 10 Gbps for fiber service will be offered, enabling government agencies, schools, and businesses in these remote island locations to benefit from videoconferencing and other advanced broadband capabilities.
