A square in the central area of Kolofo’ou in Nuku’alofa will officially become a major landmark and meeting place for all the people of Tonga. It is called the ‘Time Square’
The Ministry of Land and Survey has partnered with leading Wi-Fi operator Digicel to provide a 24 hour, 7 day, 4G Wi-Fi high-speed wireless service across the area.
The square has previously hosted the Special Olympics and Mate Ma’a Tonga welcoming home, Sisu o Fetungingila Fellowship, Doulos Broadcasting Network Praise Party, Westpac Christmas in the Park and other community events since November 2013.
Digicel Tonga’s CEO, Mr. Jack Bourke says, “We are delighted to be working with the Ministry of Lands to ensure Nuku’alofa has a safe and secure space for the people to enjoy. The “Times Square” now offers 4G speeds on our Wi- Fi service and we have received support from the local businesses and community groups for the initiatives that are being deployed to lift the overall ‘town’ experience”.
In recognition of the dedication of the square for a community purpose, this also serves as notification that the park will no longer be available as a public car-park. The safety of the visitors to the park is paramount and the elimination of vehicles in the square and park area will ensure enjoyment for all.
