Puerto Rico Taskforce Releases Broadband Strategic Plan

May 16, 2012

This week, the Puerto Rico Broadband Taskforce and Connect Puerto Rico, a subsidiary of Connect Nation, unveiled a comprehensive strategy to expand access to broadband services and improve the quality of Puerto Rico's high speed data infrastructure. Currently, about 14 percent of Puerto Ricans lack access to any broadband services, compared to 5 percent of U.S. households. Data transfer speeds also are much lower than in the U.S., stifling business development, investment and innovation. The plan includes 25 strategic goals and 40 specific policy strategies to increase broadband adoption and availability.
