The Alliance Agreement was signed at the AMPI Cancun Chapter's Monthly Assembly in Puerto Cancun on March 23, 2023. At the Assembly, GigNet presented general information on its development of a new fiber-optic network in the Cancun region, GigNet's robust Service Delivery Platform, and the opportunity for real estate professionals to particpate with GigNet in extending the advantages of secure-high speed Internet access for developers and residents. GigNet also presented its "Silicon Maya" initiative for the digital transformation of the region.
The objective of the Alliance Agreement is to build a direct communication channel with AMPI members such as real estate developers and brokers to stay at the forefront of technology for smart homes and smart communities - which are increasingly dependent on fiber-optics as the number of connected devices in residences increases each year. GigNet is the leading provider of digital infrastructure in the Mexican Caribbean and also provides value-added services such as cybersecurity, facial recognition and biometrics, Internet of Things (IoT), and video content services. Real estate professionals are at the leading edge of facilitating a "connected life" for their clients, and GigNet believes it is the best partner for AMPI members.
As the number of devices grow, so do the demands for speed and reliability in the home for entertainment, streaming, social media, e-commerce, gaming, online learning, and remote work. GigNet's network in the Cancun region consistently scores high on international measurement platforms such as nPerf, outperforming competitors in the region for achieving excellence in all areas of the application for upload and download speeds for browsing, streaming, etc.
At the Assembly and in a subsequent press conference, Mark Carney, OBE and President of GigNet Mexico, presented a program specifically for real estate professionals to be part of GigNet's "Silicon Maya" vision for the state of Quintana Roo. GigNet believes that its installation of high-speed broadband throughout the region has created the foundation for a new "Silicon Valley" on the Yucatan Peninsula.
The appeal of the region for visitors is undeniable as the Cancun International Airport set new records in 2022 including 30 million annual passengers. The region is now experiencing incredible residential growth, served extensively by GigNet's fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) services. Access to high-speed Internet has been shown to increase economic development and growth, and the stage is set for more businesses to also relocate to the Mexican Caribbean. The potential impact on real estate development - both commercial and residential - will be massive as the region can now attract technology-oriented investors, innovators, and entrepreneurs from around the world.

Mark Carney, OBE and President of GigNet Mexico commented, "One of the most important elements to make this vision possible is access to reliable high-speed Internet, until recently the missing piece in the Mexican Caribbean. GigNet has solved this by creating the first dedicated fiber-optic network in the region, making possible all the tools required for business on an international scale. Cancun's first 50 years were a tremendous success story as a leader in the global tourism industry - I know this first hand. I am now honored to be playing a key role with GigNet in the future of Quintana Roo as the best destination not only to visit, but to invest, create, live, and work."
