Haiti: Cheap Internet Service Within 12 Months

TELECO Haiti is under new management and TELECO's new owners are promising cheap Internet service in all corners of Haiti. A new Internet backbone will link Haiti's 10 major cities, a new submarine cable will link Haiti to Florida USA, and they say it can be done within the next twelve months.

Viettel - Natcom - Teleco Haiti

If you ever try going online in Haiti you know it is a nightmare. Vietel, a military Telecom corporation in Vietnam, who now owns 60% of TELECO Haiti has engineers already in Haiti trying to rebuild Teleco's infrastructure.

Not only is Vietel promising to rebuild Teleco's infrastructure, they are also promising to deliver cheap Internet services to all corners of Haiti.

According to a recent article published by the Associated Press, Viettel says it can build the Internet backbone in one year.

They are planning to lay 5,000 kilometers (3,100 miles) of fiber optics cable and link Haiti's 10 biggest cities.

Viettel also said that they will lay a new submarine cable that will link Haiti to Florida and they will repair the undersea link with the Bahamas that was damaged during the earthquakd and that Teleco never put into service.

Free Internet is planned for 1,300 mostly rural public schools and for government offices, hospitals and clinics.

Could Haiti actually bypass the Industrial age and zoom straight into the information age?

I am going to be an OPTIMIST and say...
