The province of Alicante is the southernmost and least extensive province of the Valencian Region. It is the fifth most populated province in the country, with 1,836,459 inhabitants in 2016, the fifth in population density and the most densely populated of the Valencian Community.
The technological revolution is a reality in Alicante's households. Cloud, smartphone, router, WiFi or streaming are already familiar words. The Internet of Things facilitates communication and interactivity. Considerable progress has also been made in the administration of the province, thanks to the advances and public innovations promoted by the Provincial Government. Since the creation of the Modernization area, the Alicante Provincial Council has established itself as a national reference in this area.
