The Solomons Oceanic Cable company says it will have a broadband network up and running in three of Solomon Islands major urban centres by March 2016.

Its chief executive, Robin Russell, says tenders for the project are already out and most of the world's major network providers have registered.

Mr Russell says bidding will close on the 12th of December and a tentative start date for construction has been set for March 2015.

"The bid itself is a turnkey construction contract for construction of a network that will connect Honiara to Sydney and to Auki in Malaita Province and Noro in western province so that's in total about 75 percent of the Solomon Islands population."
