Aruba is a small island in the Caribbean and a constituent country of the Netherlands. Despite being just over 30 kilometres in length, its telecommunications infrastructure caters for a population of over 105,000 residents and a booming tourism industry. The island's flat terrain and tiny size have enabled complete mobile network coverage, with innovative solutions, like underwater cables to Venezuela and the U.S., providing connectivity. Aruba has also been a pioneer in green technology, launching the Green Aruba initiative with a vision to generate 100% of its electricity from renewable sources, which has direct implications for the technology sector. The island has, therefore, overcome its geographical challenges by implementing distinctive infrastructure solutions and innovations in telecommunications and technology sectors.
