In an effort to provide new and higher Internet speeds for a better value, Liberty Puerto Rico announced Wednesday the availability of high-speed broadband of 100Mbps download with 4Mbps for upload.

“This 100Mbps service was created for individuals and families that need good bandwidth in their homes so they can connect multiple electronic devices to the Internet at the same time and stream their favorite content without sacrificing speed,” said Naji Khoury, president of Liberty Puerto Rico. “We know that our customers’ digital needs change rapidly and Liberty offers them products and services that fit their needs at a good price.”

The 100Mbps service is one of the new Internet speeds that Liberty offers, along with options ranging from 7Mbps, 15 Mbps, 30 Mbps, 50 Mbps and 75Mbps, which substitute the old speeds of 1Mbps, 3Mbps, 5 Mbps, 10 Mbps, 20 Mbps, 40Mbps and 60Mbps.

Independent tests by Net Index by Ookla (www.netindex.com) show that Liberty’s average download speeds continue to improve steadily, naming it the “top ISP in Puerto Rico,” with an average download speed of 19.48Mbps.

Liberty Puerto Rico’s metro division also ranked as the second fastest Internet service provider in the Netflix Speed Index for the United States market, behind Google Fiber and ahead of other companies such as Cablevision, Comcast, Charter and Verizon FiOS, the provider said.

“Liberty was able to achieve this ranking thanks to its speed, which provides good streaming continuity without sacrificing image quality,” the company noted, adding it is “the only provider in Puerto Rico to offer Ultra HD for its Internet customers who use Netflix.”

  1. What we want are better ISP’s, ones that do not ask us to pay $150 for and 100 MB/s download speed for a 4-5 MB/s upload speed at best.

    We want stable, affordable Internet access… why is that so hard to have here? why is it that we have to pay a lot more for less? Is it because of infrastructure limitations or is it just because ISP’s want to make profit so much?
