Broadband Upgrade

Home/Projects/Current Projects/Broadband Upgrade

The Broadband Initiative began with 5 tenders to select a vendor that will work in partnership with NEOnet to improve broadband service for the un-served and underserved in the region.

The review committee was interested in solutions that would allow a minimum download speed of 10Mbps at the end of the project, also aimed at improving the basic infrastructure (ie Fiber backhaul where it is sustainable) with a speed of 25Mbps by 2020.

The review committee selected the supplier for the broadband project and the areas proposed for upgrading can be found in the following maps:
