SONDA, the largest Latin American integrator and leader in Digital Transformation in the region, has signed the Infovia Digital contract with the government of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.

It is an innovative initiative to bring high-speed connectivity to the city and will impact 1.7 million people directly, driving local economic development and social inclusion.

Under the contract with Consórcio SONDA, worth R$887 million, the area will benefit from the project for the next 30 years. In addition, 7,000 kilometers of fiber optic network will be installed by 2024, connecting 79 municipalities and providing free high-speed Internet in 129 public squares, some as early as 2023.

The agreement also contemplates the construction of a Network Operations Center in the city of Campo Grande for video monitoring squares and vehicles that travel on state highways and the connection between administrative units, such as schools, health care units and public security.

According to Ricardo Scheffer, CEO at SONDA Brazil, the data infrastructure available in this project enables a reality that still does not exist in the region.

“Providing free Internet means bringing digital inclusion to the population through squares with free Wi-Fi, for example. The government will also have the opportunity to promote projects such as digital schools in the 4.0 model and adopt telemedicine,” said Scheffer.
