FIbre network for Dominican Republic?

Share this on social media:

The Dominican Republic is gearing up to develop a national fibre optic network, according to the Caribbean country's telecoms regulator Indotel.

The development is aimed at improving internet speeds across the country as well as providing better and faster telephone and cable services – while improving communications with the rest of the world.

A spokesperson for Indotel told Dominican Today: 'This network could be compared with a major highway, where all kinds of cars travel at high speeds.'

'The installation of this dorsal network with fibre optic technology would cost of US$62 million (RD$2.7 billion), of which US$30 million being negotiated with the World Bank and US$32 million are Dominican matching funds.'
 
The project is currently undergoing public consultation.
