DR-T1183 : Support to Digitalization in the Dominican Republic
Project Status: Implementation
The general objective of this TC is to support the comprehensive digitalization of the Dominican Republic by way of developing a strategy for deploying rural broadband infrastructure and introducing a nationwide digital broadcasting system that would contribute to improved connectivity of rural production centers as well as better access for rural populations to health and education services. Under the national ICT plan called "Republica Digital", DR is driving to extend fiber-optic networks further into remote and rural areas. On top of it, she also has repeatedly committed to complete analog switch off (by doing so successful transition to digital broadcasting) in close collaboration with the Bank and advanced countries. Through this project, we hope to provide DR a strong tool on how to achieve those goals in a cost-effective and timely manner.
