The president of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, has put into operation 500 kiosks in remote areas with more than 100 inhabitants in 286 municipalities.
The project required an investment of more than COP 551 billion. The kiosks are part of the government’s Digital Lives project which aims to promote the use and development of ICT in rural and remote areas of the country. The kiosks provide internet access and other services like phone, fax, scan and copy. Users will receive free training in the use of ICT.
