Perhaps you've seen them in their striking blue T-shirts, promoting what is fast becoming Haiti's telecommunications rocket into the future. When the Vietnamese Viettel acquired 60% of the former Haitian national telecommunication company TELECO, in April 2010, the focus for many was still on the shattering effects of the earthquake months before. But, as of September 7, 2011, the considerable leaps and bounds to the quality of Haitian technological life, facilitated by NATCOM, have been anywhere but the back of people's minds.
With rigorous promotion of a dynamic product, NATCOM has quickly improved the capacity of the country from 1 to 4 Gbps, bringing the average user from speeds of 2 to 3 Mbps into triple digit speeds. The further launch of their 3G mobile internet service has made reliable access to the internet available to all Haitians, regardless of terrain.
The internet industry in Haiti has yet to boom as many people are still unable to afford such services. Though the market has shown a lot of potential and advantages, Internet service providers must exert more efforts and initiatives to provide Internet connection at a more affordable price.
Most antennas that transmit signal for Internet connection in Haiti are located on a hill above Port-au-Prince. These antennas and transmitter cram the area, as Internet companies are forced to build their own towers. Unlike in other countries such as the United States, Haiti could still not allow tower-sharing, wherein multiple companies share a single internet infrastructure. The said infrastructure is operated by a third-party company. This makes it easier, cheaper and more efficient for service providers to operate their business. However, Haiti's telecommunication law, which has not been updated for 35 years, makes it impossible for companies to do the same in the country.
