Hawaiian Telcom has been awarded $24 million from a Federal Communications Commission fund dedicated to "bridging the digital divide." The funding, part of the $20.4 billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, will go toward deploying fiber broadband service...
YouTube TV offers cable-free live TV that can be watched on any screen and includes local stations, and over 70 networks like ESPN, HGTV and TNT as well as on-demand programming.
Nearly half of the homes on the island of Molokai now have access to fiber broadband service, after Hawaiian Telcom added about 700 new homesteads in East and North Central Molokai to its service area.
This new deal enables Hawaiki to expand its subsea network with a new route linking Sydney, Guam, Hawaii and Los Angeles, offering greater connectivity and route diversity to organizations operating between Australia and the U.S.
The addition of this fiber infrastructure will augment Hawaiian Telcom's existing backbone network and increase the company's total submarine and terrestrial fiber footprint by more than 400 miles.
