Puerto Rico looking to connect Mona Island nature reserve

Wednesday 24 October 2018 | 10:44 CET | News

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.
