Two years to go to digital TV
The Dominican Republic is set to begin its long-delayed analogue TV switch off in January 2019, according to Dominican Telecommunications Institute (Indotel) president Jose del Castillo Savinon. Del Castillo took office at the post in August 2016.
The DTT migration was initially scheduled for September 2015 before Indotel postponed it to August 2021. Now the new date is 2019.
Indotel is also planning to activate some 5,000 free Wi-Fi hotspots in parks, public squares, universities, schools and hospitals throughout the country as part of its “Digital Republic” program for 2016-2020 that also envisages connecting all provincial capitals to a national fiber-optic network
