Puerto Rico eyeing USD 130 mln undersea cable project

Monday 8 October 2018 | 11:00 CET | News
The Puerto Rican government is planning to roll out an underwater fibre optic cable across the island to help its infrastructure withstand future natural disasters, reports local daily El Nuevo Dia, citing governor Ricardo Rosello. In the wake of last year's Hurricane Maria, the government has submitted a report to US Congress indicating that the cable's first connection point would be in the southern coastal town of Ponce and would cost in the region of USD 130 million, providing an alternative to the existing undersea cable infrastructure reaching San Juan.
