ETB Net awarded Colombian digital centres project

Wednesday 25 August 2021 | 15:02 CET | News
Colombia's Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (Mintic) said it has finally awarded a contract to connect thousands of schools in digital divide areas to the ETB Net, a temporary union made up of Bogota-based operator ETB and its subsidiary SkyNet. In a statement, ICT Minister Karen Abudinen said it cancelled the initial contract awarded to the Centros Poblados consortium after it failed to offer sufficient guarantees and would be working to recover the amounts paid to the bidder.
