Governor announces Internet connection for south of state

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — State Governor Carlos Joaquín González has announced the expansion of the Internet network that will connect 39 new communities in Quintana Roo.

Joaquín González says that the network expansion will be incorporated into the state’s internet coverage to guarantee information access and contribute to the development of these communities.

Through a social media post, the governor of Quintana Roo said that the network will continue to grow.

“We are going to give #Internet to our populations in #QuintanaRoo, 39 towns join the network and we are going for more. #JuntosAvanzamos,” he wrote.

In December 2018, Quintana Roo was fifth nationally with 80 percent Internet connectivity, however, this coverage did not reach small rural communities, so the connection of 250 more communities was projected for 2019 with an estimated cost of 2 billion peso.

Marco Antonio Bravo Fabián, director of the Quintana Roo Institute of Innovation and Technology, said that companies that distribute Internet services can offer greater accessibility to the network.
