Nicaragua's New ICT Landscape

Nicaragua's ICT landscape seems to be changing gradually.
According to the Nicaragua Dispatch, in Managua, the capital city, Internet is now the second most used means for getting news, just behind TV. 78% of Managua’s population watches TV and 52% use the Internet.
Nicaragua also would like to launch its own satellite, in 2016, to support its telecom sector.

Over the past eight years, broadband prices have dropped by 90%.
Lower prices for connectivity and better broadband service logically intensify the attraction of doing business in Nicaragua.

An increased access to communication technologies has also prompted some IT and outsourcing companies to strengthen their base in the country. It attracts some new companies too.
Indeed, the future looks interesting for Nicaragua.
