With the goal of having "border to border" coverage, Martinelli's government will initially invest $250.000 to service 10 cities, with coverage in parks, touristic sites, schools, libraries, universities, hospitals and health centers.

"Panama is currently the most advanced Central American country in Information and Communication Technologies, and, in accordance to the road-map developed by the Panamanian Chamber of Technology, in 2018 it will become the first Information and Communications Technology Hub of the region", said Eduardo E. Jaén, head of the Secretary for Governmental Innovation.

Technical designs and public purchasing processes are being prepared, to implement this project within the first 100 days of Ricardo Martinelli's administration.
