Formerly Micronesian Telecommunications Corp, IT&E is a part of Verizon International. CITADEL acquired IT&E in 2005 after successfully navigating the US CIFUS process and the Federal Communications Commission.

IT&E was the first in the region to offer 3G services with the launch of CDMA EVDO in 2009. It soon followed with the launch of 4G LTE in 2011.

IT&E also handles calls for outside clients like Hawaiian Telecom and NTT, Docomo’s cable TV business.
