The infrastructure internet project valued at  $1,780,656 aims to allow internet access in rural zones, announced the Rural Development Institute.

According to the institute, of the total cost of the project, about $712,888 will be covered with their budget. The rest will be covered with the budget of Coopesantos RL, which is the organization in charge of installing electrical infrastructure in some rural areas.

The project includes the purchase and installation of a specialized high-tech equipment network along 683 miles (about 1,100 kilometers) in places where a previous study had established a lack of internet.

Authorities expect in 6 months the project will be completed in the following communities of Los Santos, Dota, Tarrazú, León Cortés, Acosta, Aserri, Puriscal, Mora, among many others in San José Province.

In addition, this week the institute is also developing an infrastructure improvement project in the San Carlos Canton area, Alajuela Province, to provide better internet access.

This second project is valued at $827,012. The funding is provided by the institute and Coopelesca RL budget, which is the organization in charge of providing electricity and internet in San Carlos, according to the institute.

That project includes installing a fiber-optic net in 31 miles (about 50 kilometers) to provide internet in the communities of La Victoria, La Españolita, Ramón Brenes, Los Lagos and La Unión.

Recently, the government announced improvements in the radio bases installed on Chira Island to provide higher fixed telephone and internet coverage.
