Carlos Slim (owner of incumbent PRT). Carol Wilson, chief editor of Telephony magazine, tells the WorldNet story which includes building out fiber-to-the-home and broadband wireless. Services on top of these spanking new networks are in demand in what many people are describing as “technology-crazed” Puerto Rico. With an IP MPLS backbone, WorldNet is positioned to offer hosted services for businesses.
“Today we feel like we are turning a corner, and we’re at the point where we stop worrying about whether we have a reliable network and start focusing on making that network sing,” said Larry Freedman, who has served as president and CEO of WorldNet.
