Technology

Papua New Guinea is one of the least technologically advanced countries
in the world. Just a few years ago cell phone service became available
here. Suddenly there were people who have never had phone service in
their homes let alone electricity, now are able to have cell phones.
There are cell phone towers popping up all over PNG that are self
contained with a generator that runs 24/7.

One thing many people here have never been exposed to are scams. They
might receive a random text message like the one pictured here saying
they have won a prize. We have had several of our friends come to our
door excited and wanting help to claim this prize and we have to break
it to them that is not true.
