Superior 4G Plus Network

We are pleased to announce the Launch and Introduction of Our Superior 4G Plus Network in Samoa. This is by far the leading milestone and largest investment in Bluesky history since 2011. We are proud to bring to you the latest technology and be the first to introduce 4G Plus to Samoa on Tuesday 7th March 2017.

4G Plus or LTE-advance is the technology we are introducing which is the next generation of 4G or LTE. And to be the first to bring this technology to Samoa is something we are really proud of. In an ideal scenario our network could deliver more than 100mbps download and 40mbps upload. These naturally depend on many factors such as spectrum availability, and handsets the customer uses. We have conducted internal tests and the test results are mind blowing.

So what is 4G Plus? 4G Plus is another name given to the 4th Generation of mobile networks. 4G Plus (LTE-Advanced) is the new term for the enhancement of our 4G network, which allows 4G handsets to receive data from multiple bands. 4G Plus operates on two bands i.e. 1800MHz and 700MHz for a superior connection – something Samoa has never had before.

4G Plus is designed to enable a further step change in data rates.  Incorporating higher order MIMO (2×2 and beyond) and allowing carrier aggregation into a single stream, 4G Plus’ target is to achieve peak data rates of 1 billion of bits per second.

We have forty 4G sites live today and this means that we will cover more than 50% of Samoa’s population with 4G coverage. The more important fact is that 50% of our 4G coverage will have 4G Plus.  Our coverage areas will span from

Bluesky Sponsors Samoa International Independence 7s.

Wednesday 27th May, Apia, Samoa – Bluesky Samoa and Independent Events today announced their second year of partnership to bring about the Samoa International Independence 7s 2015.  The announcement was made at Bluesky’s Matafele store this afternoon, in the presence of Bluesky customers and one very special guest, world renowned 7s Maestro, Waisale Serevi.

The Directors of the Samoa Independence International 7s invited Serevi to come to Samoa to conduct clinics for some of the schools and local rugby players, in the lead up to this weekend’s tournament.

Bluesky’s Country Manager, Alex Abraham, officially congratulated Chairman Su’a Steve Schuster and the Organizing Committee of the Samoa Independence International 7s for carrying the tournament through to its second year.

“Our support is not only to the event itself but also to the causes that it supports both in the development of youth in rugby and also to the charity that the SII 7s has nominated to offer its proceeds to – namely Faataua le Ola and the Samoa Victim Support Group.”

The tournament will host several local as well as overseas teams including Fiji Police, Global Tabadamu and Uluinakau from Fiji, and Talavalu and Leone Whites from American Samoa, as well as teams from Australia and New Zealand.

Serevi spoke that his desire to help developing rugby players stems from his humble beginnings.  He told of how he once was a young, aspiring rugby player who learned from some of the greats in rugby and it helped him get to where he is today, and he hopes that by holding clinics of his own, it will help one one or a few Samoan players to rise up in the international 7s ranks.

Bluesky customers and staff got the opportunity to take […]
