Tuesday 3 November 2020 | 11:19 CET | News
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) confirmed that all locations in Puerto Rico will have access to broadband at download speeds of at least 100 Mbps thanks to stage 2 funding of the 'Uniendo a Puerto Rico' initiative. In a statement, the FCC pledged to allocate USD 127.1 million in funding over 10 years to enable Liberty Communications and Claro Puerto Rico (America Movil) to roll out 100Mbps connections throughout the island, including 1Gbps fixed broadband connections in "nearly one-third" of the territory.
