Santo Domingo.- In the next three years the telecom Altice will increase its annual investment on new infrastructure by 20%, or RD$20.0 billion (US$435.0 million).

Altice Dominican Republic president Martin Roos made the announcement Thursday during a visit to president Danilo Medina in the National Palace.

Roos stressed Altice’s commitment and confidence in the country’s development.

He said Altice has kept increasing its investment by 20% annually since its arrival in the country. “We have grown and increased our position in the country.”

“Orange and Tricom consolidate their leadership and we’ve seen the dynamism of the sector,” the executive said with Multi-Million Dollar Investment In Dominican Republic Telecom and Internet

Roos said democratization in telecom services has spurred them to continue their vision of securing stronger development and economic growth for Dominicans.

Netherlands-based Altice Group is working with equipment vendor Arris International to enable the provision of gigabit services to customers in France, the US and the Dominican Republic.

Altice will deploy the ARRIS E6000 Converged Edge Router (CER) with SFR in France and Orange-Tricom in the Dominican Republic, and it will expand the E6000 CER footprint in its recently acquired US subsidiary, Suddenlink Communications. Max Blumberg, CTO of Altice, commented: ‘

We look forward to deploying the platform across the Altice properties as we strive to deliver the broadband speeds and services our customers demand from us.’

Roos said the Dominican Republic is one of its main markets in the region, adding that his company will support the Digital Republic.

An official at the Dominican Republic’s telecoms regulator Indotel says internet users in the country will be able to benefit from cheaper and faster broadband services within the next two years, once fibre-optic infrastructure is extended nationwide.

A report from Dominican Today quotes the watchdog’s executive director Alberty Canela as saying that the government is working on the deployment of a fibre backbone network, and has already completed a 219km section linking Santo Domingo, Santiago and Puerto Plata.

In January 2014 Indotel unveiled details of its ‘National Fiber Optic Network’ project, which was included in the government’s 2014-2015 Biennial Plan. The USD60 million network rollout is thought to be co-funded by the World Bank.
