Welcome to the official website of the Puerto Rico Bridge Initiative (PRBI).  Funded through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration at the US Department of Commerce, the PRBI is working to improve broadband services for all residents of Puerto Rico.   We invite you to learn more about us.


High-speed Internet or broadband is one of the most transformative communications technologies in human history. In just over a decade, broadband has completely changed commerce, public discourse, and how we interact with each other and the rest of the world. Broadband is no longer a luxury. Broadband is a necessity.
