Internet connections increase
According to data published by the Dominican telecommunications regulator Indotel, the number of Internet connections in the Dominican Republic has soared by over 22% per year to reach 6.1 million at the end of January 2017, having grown 26% in 2016 as a whole.
However, Indotel’s chairman Jose del Castillo Savinon emphasizes that the goal is to boost internet access from the current figure of less than 50% of the population to at least 70% over the next three years.
The government’s República Digital program calls for substantially increased fiber-optic coverage to meet the goal, starting with the introduction of broadband services in ten more provinces to connect nearly all of the country’s 32 provinces.
