Kish authorities on Wednesday announced they have set up an exclusive fiber optic network in line with a strategy to expand IT and telecommunication infrastructure in the Persian Gulf island.  The project will aid business development on the island to better match surrounding Arab countries’ offering. “More than 16 kilometers of optical fiber has been laid down in the eastern and northeastern parts of the island,” Ali Asghar Mounesan, managing director of Kish Free Zone Organization, said. “Administrative centers as well as KFZO offices and other complexes including the airport, commercial port, passenger terminals and hospitals have all been connected to the network.” Mounesan underlined the need for high-speed telecommunication infrastructure, saying the new optical project is at the top of the agenda for KFZO. Local authorities in recent times have attempted to increase their offerings to tempt businesses to move into the free zone.
