LIBERTY REPORTS PROGRESS IN INFRASTRUCTURE WORK AND ACTIVATES FREE WIFI HOT SPOTS
The hot spots are available through different parts of the metropolitan area and the Eastern side of the island. They will spread as service comes back up.
SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO, October 3, 2017 – Liberty Puerto Rico is making progress in its infrastructure restoration work. In addition to completing work in its fiber line from San Juan to Luquillo, the company also completed work in lines that travel to Caguas and Levittown. Technical personnel are in the Mayagüez area rebuilding the fiber ring in the Western zone.
In the meantime, the company has already activated free high-speed WiFi hotspots in several public spaces. The first one is already operating at Bahía Urbana in San Juan from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. There is another one at West Marine’s parking lot, in front of the Coliseo de Puerto Rico in Hato Rey, which is on from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday. In the East, another WiFi hot spot operates in front of Liberty’s offices in Luquillo 24 hours a day.
Liberty Puerto Rico will be adding more WiFi hot spots in other locations such as the plaza in front of Caguas City Hall, and the Guarda Rama parking lot under Bayamon’s City Hall building. The company will be offering more information on these and other locations in the next few days.
Regarding restoration work, Liberty is working alongside the Puerto Rico Power Authority (PREPA) to make sure that services will be running once the zones are powered up. The company is checking equipment to repair outages or reconstruct its facilities in areas with severe damages to make sure they will be working once they have power. Actually, the company activated a joint line and construction technicians brigade plan to restore services in areas where power service is already available as soon as possible.
“Liberty is committed to Puerto Rico’s recovery after Hurricane Maria’s trek through the island and we have been working since the day after the storm to reestablish our services as soon as possible,” stated Naji Khoury, president and CEO of Liberty Puerto Rico. “We want Puerto Rico to have its telecommunication services and we are working tirelessly to achieve this purpose.”
