Samoan infrastructure on Tutuila
« on: January 25, 2009, 11:17:24 PM »
Capital improvements have enabled American Samoa to achieve an infrastructure  that is enviable among most other islands in the Pacific.  In addition to a well-established  international airport and one of the Pacific’s only natural deep-water harbors, Pago Pago  has an excellent cruise ship port, container docks and other maritime facilities, as well as  excellent roads, extremely reliable power, water and waste treatment systems. The  American Samoa Power Authority (ASPA) has achieved an impressive record for quality  and reliability. Even through droughts and hurricanes, ASPA has maintained service  without interruption.    Telecommunications within the island itself and off-island are robust.  Three ISPs offer  high-bandwidth internet service and two telecommunications companies now offer  cellular phone service.  American Samoa recently joined the North American Numbering  Plan, which means that dialing American Samoa from the continental U.S. is no longer  an international call.
