The Government of the Canary Islands will allocate more than 430,000 euros to extend broadband on the island.
The investment will allow 80% coverage in the towns of Las Casitas, Maciot and Playa Quemada -in the municipality of Yaiza-, Las Laderas ( Teguise), Vega de Tegoyo (Tías), as well as Guinate, Órzola, Tabayesco and Ye, within the municipality of Haría..
Specifically, the users reached by the new coverage will be able to have Internet connectivity through fiber optics at a speed of 100 Megabits per second.
Backup Server Room
The Cabildo de Lanzarote already has a backup server room that "will allow to maintain the operation of the fibre system in case of damage from fire or flood in the main data facility", explains Manuel Cabrera.
The aforementioned backup room is made up of servers, a storage booth, network electronics and backup systems, which allow a continuous replication of the information managed in the main data facility, this can be online in a matter of hours if required.
