The company Altice Dominicana announced that it won an international public tender held by the National Telecommunications Institute (Indotel) for the concession and license to operate radio frequencies that will allow the implementation of 5G technology in the country.
In a meeting held with Indotel, the frequency allocation for Altice was announced, which will allow the company to deploy the so-called mobile generation (5G) services in the national territory.
They also qualified that this will be “a milestone that marks a great step forward for the Dominican Republic in telecommunications”.
“We have made substantial investments in adaptations of its infrastructure to be ready and start with the implementation in stages, creating the conditions for the country to move gradually towards full coverage,” said Ana Figueiredo, CEO of Altice.
In this sense, Figueiredo congratulated the effort and commitment of President Luis Abinader and Indotel authorities for this achievement. He went on to express the company’s commitment to continue working in favor of national development.
“In Altice we are happy and ready to implement all our knowledge in the development of the 5G network, to continue growing and evolving with this country, made of life, made of fiber,” said the CEO to celebrate the announcement of the award of the license.
