New phase of modernisation begins for Haiti’s Teleco

10 Jun 2009

The process of modernisation of Haiti’s incumbent fixed line network operator Telecommunications d’Haiti (Teleco) has entered its second phase, writes Haiti Press Network. Private companies have been invited to participate in a tender for a strategic partnership and network upgrading project, launched on Monday by the Bank of the Republic of Haiti (BRH). The project’s primary objective is to restructure Teleco via a partnership with an operator possessing the technical and financial capacity to provide a competitive fixed telephony service, as well as developing wireless broadband and wholesale broadband capacity services. In addition, important goals will be to improve access to and quality of telecoms services for the population, and to restore the profitability of Teleco. The International Finance Corporation (IFC), the commercial arm of the World Bank, is acting as adviser and financier for the project.
