One of the most important priorities for Latvian State Radio and Television Centre was establishing good work public administration institutions in order to provide a full spectrum of services of the Single Electronic Communications Centre. The first stage of the Logical Unified Data Centre project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund will be finished before the end of the year. This will help improve efficient use of resources and cyber security of data and e-services. LVRTC has also improved other cyber services, including protection against DDoS attacks, said LVRTC chairman Jānis Bokta during his meeting with Transport Minister Uldis Augulis on Thursday, 13 December.
At the same time, construction work continues on construction of two more broadcasting towers in Latgale. These towers will not only strengthen the country’s information space and improve social media accessibility in the region, but also open up new infrastructure services for telecommunication operators.

Construction work for the implementation of the 2nd stage of the broadband project commenced this year. So far construction work has been completed along 419 km long stretch.

Bokta also said LVRTC started providing services to a number of foreign operators last year. Exploration of export markets also continued in 2018. Several long-term service agreements with existing and new international electronic communication service operators have been signed.
