Cook island

Basics Edit

The Cook Islands are a small island nation in the South Pacific with political links to New Zealand. Its 15 islands are scattered over a vast area and the largest island is called Rarotonga.

They have only one mobile provider:

  • BlueSky Cook Islands

2G/GSM is on 900 MHz on all inhabited islands, 3G/UMTS started only recently on Rarotonga and Aitukaki islands. On all other islands, data is only up to EDGE speed.

Like in many small island nations too bandwidth for internet is limited and costly due to expensive satellite connections. A submarine cable linking the Cook Islands to New Zealand and Hawaii is currently under construction and scheduled to be finished in 2018.

BlueSky Cook Islands Edit


BlueSky by Telecom Cook Islands remains the only provider on the islands. They started with mobile services back in 2003, but their new brand BlueSky was launched in 2015.
