Jordan to complete NBN network in two years

19 Mar 2014

Jordan’s government has committed USD209 million to complete the National Broadband Network project within the next two years. Tenders for the supply and construction of the network are expected to be completed in May, ICT Minister Azzam Sleit said, adding: ‘All projects under the tenders that the government floated will be completed in two years after which the scheme will be ready. This will greatly boost e-services, e-health and e-education in the Kingdom.’ The project, which aims to connect all public schools and universities, government agencies and hospitals to a nationwide fibre-optic network was launched in 2003 but has stalled several times due to lack of funds.
