Construction of Broadband Infrastructure for the Central East Region of Puerto Rico

The Construction of Broadband Infrastructure project intends to expand broadband Internet access within some of the neediest areas of Puerto Rico by deploying a multifaceted 515-mile network that will include both wireless and fiber connections. The project plans to directly connect nearly 250 anchor institutions, including higher education facilities, hospitals, municipal facilities, police stations, and libraries. The project also expects to facilitate faster and more affordable broadband Internet access for local consumers, including approximately 300 anchor institutions, 136,000 households, and 600 businesses and industrial centers, by enabling local service providers to connect to the project’s open network. In addition, the project will extend free Wi-Fi hotspots to further promote digital literacy to low-income adults and youth.
