Nicaragua is the largest and least populated country in Central America. It is bordered by Honduras, the Caribbean, Costa Rica and the Pacific Ocean and has a population of 6.2 million. The landscape across Nicaragua is split into three distinct areas; the Pacific lowlands with large fertile valleys; the Amerrisque Mountains and the Mosquito Coast. Nicaragua is primarily an agricultural country and this accounts for 60% of the country’s exports that include tobacco, cassava, bananas and coffee. It is becoming less dependent on fossil fuels and mining is now a growing and important industry for the Nicaraguan economy.
Telecommunications across Nicaragua are available in major urban areas, such as the capital, Managua. However, outside of urban areas, infrastructure is scarce and in need of development. The Nicaraguan broadband network is in its very early stages and requires investment. The World Bank has become involved in an attempt to boost broadband access and is funding the development of the broadband infrastructure across the country. The project, called the Caribbean Regional Communications Infrastructure Program Project aims to increase access to regional broadband networks and advance the development of an Information Technology and Information Technology-Enabled Services (IT and ITES) industry in Nicaragua and the Caribbean region. It will fill key gaps in broadband connectivity on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua to contribute to improved regional telecommunications linkages, to boost human capacity and business development under a regionally harmonized framework and approach, so as to generate employment and position the region and Nicaragua in particular, as a destination of choice for IT businesses.
At present, Nicaraguans tend to access the Internet from cafes, where it is available but the mobile sector is growing and this will be the main method of broadband connectivity for the majority of the population. In 2016, Internet penetration in Nicaragua stood at 19.4%. Mobile phone penetration is growing rapidly.
