Pronatel, Peru’s national telecommunications program, has made progress in connectivity projects in the Loreto region.
The preparation of the Basic Engineering Study (EBI) for the Napo-Putumayo Broadband Project and for the Manseriche District Broadband Project took place to bridge the digital divide.
When the two projects are implemented, a total of 51,772 citizens, from 314 localities, from the provinces of Datem del Marañón, Alto Amazonas, Maynas, Loreto and Putumayo will be able to access the free high quality Internet service.
In addition, the joint installation of seven Digital Access Centers (CAD) is planned, which will promote and advance the productive use and appropriation of new technologies by the population.
Both projects will allow the deployment of approximately 100 kilometers of optical fiber, so that 392 public institutions, including schools, medical and police stations, as well as end users, can access broadband services.
Previously, in 2020, institutional cooperation framework agreements had been signed with the regional government of Loreto to facilitate the execution of the Napo-Putumayo project and the Manseriche project.
Pronatel, an entity attached to the Ministry of Transport and Communications, continues to reduce the connectivity gap in Peru and generate opportunities for all Peruvians, through the implementation of internet services using a high quality telecommunications network .
