Under a new 15-year agreement, Telefonica International Wholesale Services (TIWS) will provide Ecuador's government with 200Mbps of internet capacity to be used for educational and social projects across the country, reports BNamericas. The country's telecommunications development fund Fodetel will be in charge of the execution of the projects, and telecoms agency Senatel said it expects the social programmes will benefit approximately a million people. Last year, TIWS linked Ecuador to its 10Gbps SAM-1 international submarine cable.
