Puerto Rico's lower house last week approved a proposal to examine the feasibility of connecting the territory's Mona Island, a nature reserve with no population centres, reports local daily El Nuevo Dia. The island is in fact the archipelago's third largest but currently has no telecommunications infrastructure in spite of thousands of tourist and expert visits a year. The aim is to install connectivity above all with a view to enabling calls for help from the island in the event of an emergency, said the report.
