Datec PNG today achieved a monumental milestone by openings its state-of-the art Megastore at Gordon along the Poreporena Freeway.

The Megastore, which is open seven days a week is located at Steamships commercial property development in Gordon, and heralds a new dawn for information and communication technology (ICT) in Papua New Guinea with the LNG project coming on stream.

The complex also houses the brand-new Datec Leaning Centre which aims to bring world-class ICT education to PNG.

Datec chief executive officer Bhanu Sud was a relieved man today after months of hard work in the lead-up to today's opening.

“Datec has achieved a monumental milestone by opening its state-of-the-art Megastore that is focused on our customers enjoying e-lifestyle experience,” he said.

“This is the biggest one-stop shop in PNG.

“There’s enough parking space for over 60 customers.”

The new Datec Megastore is 50% bigger than the old one and will enable the company to showcase its full range of products and offerings.

“We’re committed to providing our customers with a one-stop shopping experience,” said retail director Rob Masters.

“We represent some of the leading brands like Canon, IBM, Lenovo, HP, Microsoft and a host of other smaller brands and pride ourself in being a one-stop shop through our new store and our showroom in Lae.

“We realise that there is a growing need in the small to medium business and in the home for latest technology products like PCs, notebooks, scanners, UPS, communications products, entertainment, digital photography and multi-media solutions.

“We represent PCs and notebooks from leading industry manufacturers such as IBM, Lenovo, Acer, and our recent additions the Apple iMac and MacBook range…”

“In addition to these leading brands, we also assemble our own brand of PCs, the Datec iSystem in both standard and build-to-order models, which gives both quality and cost-effective solutions.

“We carry a full range of networking communications multi-function printers, digital cameras, multi-media solutions and more recently the Sony range of products to our line.”

Hundreds of excited customers flocked into the Megastore today to see Datec’s latest hi-tech offerings.

    Congratulations on your new look IT/Computor store. Will try out your internet cafe but please cut the fees down a bit to below K10 and hour. Your fees of K20/hour is still too high for students and most members of the public.
