HISPASAT, along with NEC Colombia, provides satellite connectivity in seven Colombian provinces through the initiative Kiosco Vive Digital, which is promoted by the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology.
In December 2013, HISPASAT and NEC won the MinTIC bid to install, operate and manage 648 digital Kioscos in seven departments in the country, as part of the second stage of the Kiosco Vive Digital initiative. Its objective is to ensure that 100% of towns with over 100 inhabitants in Colombia have at least one communal Internet access point. Since then, the Amazonas, Boyacá, Caldas, Cundinamarca, Guainía, Risaralda and Vaupés departments have been given access to the Internet, national and international telephone services, computer literacy and e-government, among others.
In 2015, HISPASAT and Globalsat began to provide connectivity to more than 8,700 public spaces in rural and remote areas of Mexico. This number encompasses three of the four areas that form part of the 10K network, an initiative of the México Conectado project, which was set up by the Secretariat of Communications and Transport (SCT). This network aims to provide Internet access to more than 10,000 schools, health centres, libraries, community centres and other public facilities in Mexico located in towns and villages that do not have broadband connectivity.
