Meet a new alternative in Panama Internet, Interfast

The GPON has a range of up to 1000 MB per second symmetrical already exists in parts of Europe and Asia. It is estimated that by 2020 North American and European users will be prepared to receive 10,000 Mbps.

20 years were slow to be what today has in telecommunications in Panama. Interfast in Panama have the ambitious plan to realize a total of 5 years, Why? Because they have the ability to change a 100% fiber building in 3 days. However the contact part of the building may take longer for bureaucratic reasons.

Internet is security state in Interfast Panama the right steps so that in case it happens an event or attack, the network can continue to operate take, it has a passive network and that's part of what it means GPON and with this, as they themselves indicate, they make sure to be ready by 2020.

Symmetrical internet plans

Currently they consist of different symmetrical internet plans.

The smallest plan is 100 Mbps to 1,000 Mbps symmetric symmetrical to the residential user.

The commercial user can count up to 10,000 Mbps, this amount is aimed at large companies with large consumption. Of course they must have adequate infrastructure.

Phone service

In Panama, there are many operators offering voice service over IP, but these companies use some teams called E1, where they deliver 100 phone numbers with 30 channels, which means you can make 33 calls between incoming and outgoing, with IC technology, you can have only 1 phone number with 100 incoming and 100 outgoing or more calls. When using a line CI can have this on your phone, for example: you can bring to China and from China are calling like you're in Panama.

Resources

To incorporate this technology, it requires trained personnel, Interfast Panama invested more than 600 thousand dollars last year, not only for training but for implementation and design. This is a point where many companies fail, we noted a case in Ecuador where were invested 66 million dollars and the date after 4 years have only managed to reach 1,500 households, when instead Interfast Panama in 7 months training their collaborators, have reached 7 thousand households.

They plan to reach out to 50,000 users per year over the next 3 years with an investment of 33 million dollars. Their equipment suppliers are very proud of the work being done, in fact they (suppliers) have offices in Brazil, Colombia and want to bring all customers here because they are giving the example of how it should be executed the plan. An example of this is while Colombia is delayed 2 months to reach a building and wiring it. Interfast takes 3 days.

96% of staff who have are Panama. They have brought foreign experts to train in countries like China, the United States and Russia.
