Connectivity Technologies Used by the Program
Mexico Conectado promotes hybrid, neutral and open telecommunication network deployment to provide high-speed Internet to public buildings and spaces.
The program uses two types of technologies:
Satellite technology is used to provide Internet services to rural communities located too far away from fiber optic telecommunications networks. These communities average size is between 500 and 2,500 inhabitants, which live in high or very high levels of marginalization.
Wired and wireless technologies use telecommunications operators infrastructure to provide Internet access. Public buildings and spaces using these technologies are mostly located in highly dense urban areas. Part of these networks provide high-capacity Internet to those public buildings that carry on research projects that have big data transference requirements, such as universities and research centers.
