How to use a dial-up internet from a hotel room, an interesting question, a young guest in the next room asked me during my trip to North Pacific. Because of my age, I think he considered me the cave-man (pre-broadband generation).

Marshall Islanders are known for their speed

After Palau, my next stop was Majuro, Republic of Marshall Islands (RMI). Iokwe (pronounced yok-we) — “welcome” — is the first word of Marshallese language you would hear when you land at Majuro International Airport in this island paradise. The Marshall Islands is actually a collection of more than 1,225 islands and islets and 870 reef systems. Two nearly parallel chains of 29 coral atolls and five islands form the Ratak (Sunrise) and Ralik (Sunset) chains, covering 70 square miles.

Palau is a visionary country

Palau is a small beautiful country in the North Pacific with a population of 20956 and area of 459 square kilometers. It consists of more than 300 islands and atolls. Palau’s size did not stop it from introducing competition into its telecom sector earlier than many of the Pacific countries. So far it has licensed four voice operators and has two working voice telecom operators Palau National Communications Corporation (PNCC) and Palau Mobile Corporation. Both also provide data and international call service in addition to mobile services.
