This year, e-sig­na­ture was used more than half a mil­lion times a month in Latvia. A to­tal of 5.7 mil­lion doc­u­ments have been signed us­ing this func­tion in Latvia so far. More than 25,000 now use e-sig­na­ture func­tion on their smart-phones.

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.

LVRTC in­formed the min­is­ter about the progress made with de­vel­op­ment of elec­tronic com­mu­ni­ca­tion in­fra­struc­ture in Latvia. 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. The project LVRTC im­ple­mented this au­tumn was nom­i­nated for the Euro­pean Broad­band Award in the Open­ness and Com­pe­ti­tion cat­e­gory and ended up in the Top 3, BNN was told by Trans­port Min­istry.

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.
