FCC proposes $954 million to restore Puerto Rico's telecom networks

Jon Fingas

The FCC is ready to do more to help Hurricane Maria victims beyond a task force and short-term cash infusions. Chairman Ajit Pai has proposed spending a total of $954 million to both fix and expand telecom networks in both Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The measure would offer an extra $64 million in near-term recovery, but would also include $631 million to repair and grow wired broadband as well as $259 million to improve LTE data.

Wow this is a great deal for American Movil which is owned by Carlos Slim. PRT/Claro is a privately owned phone company of American Movil out of Mexico. FCC bailout of a private company. PRT/Claro also provides service to the US Virgin Islands. Your tax dollars at work.

Mexican mobile heavyweight América Móvil (AM) has completed a delayed takeover of Puerto Rican holding company Telecomunicaciones de Puerto Rico (Telpri), the parent of incumbent fixed line operator Puerto Rico Telephone Company (PRT) and wireless provider Verizon Wireless PR, the latter of which it plans to rebrand under its international Claro trademark. AM bought 100% of Telpri, which was previously owned by US telco Verizon Communications (52%), the Puerto Rican government (28%), local bank Banco Popular (13%) and Telpri employees (7%). At the end of 2006 PRT had 1.022 million fixed lines in service and Verizon Wireless PR served 554,000 mobile customers.

On 27 March 2006 US telecoms regulator the FCC granted conditional approval for AM to acquire Verizon’s 52% in return for promising to invest USD1 billion in PRT’s infrastructure over the next five years. On 3 April 2006 Verizon reached an agreement to sell its stake in Telpri to AM for USD939 million, and in July 2006 AM agreed to pay USD500 million for the state-held 28% and USD199 million for Popular’s 13%, bringing the total price for a 93% stake to USD1.64 billion. The deal was originally expected to be completed by the end of 2006, but the process of obtaining US regulatory approval slowed proceedings down. AM is the first foreign company to acquire a US-controlled mobile operator in a US territory.

Maunabo, Puerto Rico (CNN)Lourdes Rodriguez heard the scream early on the morning of January 6, before the sun rose and before the frogs began their chorus.

"Lourdes! Lourdes!"
