VIENTIANE - Laos is to complete the installation of its first underground national fibre-optic network this month, to compete with private overground networks, media reports said Tuesday.
The state-funded infrastructure project under the Defence Ministry already provides its service to ministries and government offices in the capital and eight of Laos' 18 provinces, the Vientiane Times said.
''The remaining provinces, except Xaisomboun, are expected to be able to use the network after the completion slated for the end of this month,'' the government mouthpiece said.
