Rueben Kautu, the acting chairman of Kumul Telikom (KTHL), says work is under way to complete the merger of Bmobile and Telikom into a single entity, The National reported. He told staff, board and management during the celebration of Telikom PNG's 65th anniversary of operation that they would facilitate the National Executive Council (NEC) decision made in August to merge the two operators into one entity. 

Kautu said the government decision will be implemented by the board and management and will strategically place them in a very strong position to expand business as they will be able to offer converged services to customers. Kautu said Dataco will continue to focus on providing services to resellers, internet service providers, fixed and mobile retail business.

Kautu encouraged Telikom staff to work smart and hard, to stay focused, and to take on the challenges head on and regain what was rightful for the people of PNG who were the shareholders of KTH. The merger is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
