The PACTE program is widespread access to telecommunications in all regions of Morocco without exception. The PACTE program will run until June 2012.

Presentation of the PACTE program

The aim of the PACTE program is to provide access to telephony and Internet in 9263 rural communities (a population of about 2 million inhabitants), described as "white zones" (areas not covered by telecommunication networks).

This program, with an initial budget of 1.44 billion MAD, was adopted by the Telecommunications Universal Service  Management Committee (CGSUT) on November 20, 2006. The program's deadline has been extended to June 2012 following the resolution of the Board of Directors in July 2011.
