Compartel projects boost broadband access

29 Nov 2005

Colombia’s Communications Ministry has awarded two contracts worth a total of COP136 billion (USD59.7 million) as part of its Compartel universal service initiative to bring broadband internet access to all public sector organisations. Unión Temporal Coldecón won a tender to roll out a broadband network in the northern part of the country, whilst América-Promesa de Sociedad Futura E was contracted to cover the south of the country. The Compartel programme aims to provide broadband access to 53% of public school pupils, 97% of mayors’ offices, 17% of public hospitals and 100% of provincial agribusiness management centres.
