Haiti´s economic and social indicators remain far lower than the average for Latin America and the Caribbean. The recent years of political and economic turmoil and natural disasters have stifled most sectors of the economy, including the telecoms sector which remains one of the least developed in the world.
In the internet market, poor fixed-line infrastructure has obliged most businesses to
rely on satellite and wireless technologies.
