We want our customers and Puerto Rico in general to regard us as a valuable information resource that they can rely on to answer their questions and use the Internet with more ease,” said Naji Khoury, president and CEO of Liberty Puerto Rico.
Liberty created its “Navega con Seguridad” campaign to raise awareness among its customers, parents, teachers and Internet users in general on the dangers they can encounter while using the Internet. The “Navega con Seguridad” webpage offers information on the campaign, plus useful downloadable resources, tip sheets and educational materials for the general public.
