Timor Telecom signs contract to install state fibre network

Wednesday 28 March 2018 | 11:25 CET | News
The Timor-Leste Prime Minister signed with Timor Telecom a contract for the supply, installation and configuration of a fibre-optic network, reports Lusa. With a value of approximately USD 1.88 billion, the project covers the interconnection of a fibre network between EDTL (Electricidade de Timor-Leste) substations and municipal administration buildings in 12 municipalities. Also planned is a link between the municipalities and the data centres of the Prime Minister's office, giving the government its own private network and creating the basis for broadening e-government.
