AT&T announced that it invested nearly USD 350 million in its Puerto Rico mobile and fixed line networks during 2016-2018, up 27 percent on its previous 3-year investment. In a statement, the company said the expenditure has been used to boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and businesses, above all in the wake of the 2017 hurricane season. It has also invested significant funds in the FirstNet first responder network as part of a project to transform the territory's public safety communications.
