Increasing Internet Access in Puerto Rico
Proposing anchor institutions and providing broadband infrastructure at schools.
Students worked with the Puerto Rico Department of Education to improve broadband infrastructure in schools. Many areas in Puerto Rico are still affected by the destruction of recent hurricanes, including the broadband internet at schools and universities. A major idea that students proposed to the Department of Education was to implement anchor institutions. Anchor institutions would give access to broadband internet not only to students of these institutions but also to community members.
