The group will contribute some 300 Wi-Fi hot spots and invest some CRC 700 million in improving fibre connectivity, above all in underserved localities along the Haitian border, said Dominican Telecommunications Institute (Indotel) president Jose Del Castillo Savinon in an interview with El Caribe.
