Google’s Proposal for Improving Internet in Haiti

In the nearly ten months since the Haiti earthquake, Google has engaged with and learned a lot about the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. At the request of Clinton Foundation, and with some input from Inveneo, “Google recently came up with some ideas for improving Internet in Haiti and wrote them up in a paper (embedded below).

They include opening TV or other appropriate spectrum for use, as the FCC recently approved in the US, and different possibilities for connecting to undersea cables that would help make easy, cheap broadband connectivity a reality for Haitians.

We believe a stronger Internet means a stronger economy and democracy, and we hope this discussion will help Haiti succeed,” stated Google.
