Oct 14 2019

Mariah Nasak, winner of Kacific’s ‘Touch the Sky’ essay writing contest, recently returned from her trip to Los Angeles, California, where she toured the Boeing Satellite and SpaceX rocket factories.

She shared her thoughts on this eye-opening visit, and the importance of affordable internet access in Vanuatu, especially for small businesses and online shopping.

“My favourite part is seeing the satellite in all its glory, the solar plates and the antenna and just imagining how they will all be fit together to make this glorious thing that will help my country gain even more access to the internet,” said Ms Nasak.

“If the launching of this satellite will help in bringing affordable internet to my country and in turn help to develop it, I’m all for it,” she added.

Aside from having a registered office in Vanuatu, Kacific also provides services to  Vanuatu Interisland Telemedicine and Learning (VITAL) Network, which connects schools and health clinics to the internet.
