Through this project, financed by the Telecommunications Development Fund, we will connect the communes of Lago Verde and Las Guaitecas, and the commune of O’Higgins will also be added through a project financed by the regional government and its advice. With this we are taking a very important step in bridging the digital divide in the Aysén region and connecting hundreds of homes in our commune to ensure access to the Internet and telecommunications for the inhabitants of our region and, ultimately, allowing the possibility of that boys, girls, young people, adolescents and adults who live in our territory have the same rights of access to information, knowledge, education, entertainment and leisure, and all the benefits that telecommunications provide today .”
