Nauru is a small island country in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. There is only one operator on the island:
- Digicel Nauru
Digicel uses 900 MHz for 2G/GSM and 3G/UMTS/HSPA+. 900 MHz is common for 2G but not so usual for 3G, so check your phone support. 4G/LTE has not started yet. The whole island is covered: coverage map.
WiMAX under name DigiNet is offered by Digicel as well but is not compatible with GSM phones. You need to buy a mobile WiMAX hotspot from Digicel. This is not covered by this WIKI, so will not be mentioned further.
