Connect Puerto Rico - Increasing Broadband Access and Use

San Juan, PR – New research unveiled today by Connect Puerto Rico shows that the number of households in Puerto Rico with access to fixed wireless broadband has increased by 14.5 percent since October 2012.

“Though advances in broadband access are being made, 145,000 households remain without broadband to empower them with the life-changing benefits of this technology,” said Chris Pedersen, director of program outreach for Connect Puerto Rico. “The Puerto Rico Broadband Strategic Plan represents a comprehensive, multi-sector effort that sets forth goals to close this gap.”

Nonprofit Connect Puerto Rico has been working since 2009 to evaluate broadband access, adoption, and use in Puerto Rico and promote the economic, educational, health, safety, and quality of life benefits derived from this increasingly needed technology.
