Micronesia profile

Micronesia has no daily newspaper, but the federal government publishes a fortnightly information bulletin and each of the constituent state governments produces its own newsletter.

The constitution provides for freedom of expression.

The state governments and a religious organisation operate radio stations, and cable TV is available on Pohnpei and Chuuk.

There are no official restrictions on internet access, however cost and a lack of infrastructure limit availability on outlying islands. There were more than 22,000 internet users by December 2011 (Internetworldstats.com).
