Disaster Safe Planning Guide [Download Now]

It's good to be ready - we want to share some general advice on preparation and action to take in case of a natural disaster.

We know how important it is to keep the business running and stay in touch with colleagues, friends, relatives, and loved ones during times of strife and uncertainty, and want to do everything we can to help - being prepared is extremely important. Please take a look at this page on ndmo.gov.fj for helpful information on getting your household ready for severe weather conditions.

We've got a few tips around the products and services we provide and keeping customer premises equipment (CPE) safe, secure and operational.


Lost power? Extend your phone battery life

In the case of an emergency with no grid/mains power, more extreme measures may be required.

 

Network congested? Text, don't call

In an unprecedent scenario/emergency, we recommend texting instead of calling wherever possible, and turning your smartphone's data connection off if not needed. During emergencies, there is heavy demand on resources and some cell sites may get congested or operate on backup battery power (in case of grid failure). Please consider the communication needs of others in addition to your own.

Mobile Device and Computers

Surge protectors are a great idea to protect sensitive home electronics like computers and broadband modems in the event of lightning strikes or major power surges.
