Guaynabo, Puerto Rico – 11-23-2020 (PRDistribution.com) — The ISP continues to grow and expand its spectrum assets.
AeroNet, Puerto Rico’s leading high-speed business internet service provider, announces a 2.5 GHz mid-band spectrum acquisition from Ana G. Méndez University System. The 2.5 GHz band is currently one of the most valuable spectrum bands for 5G and is paramount for the next-generation wireless networks.
This spectrum acquisition is a crucial part of AeroNet’s strategy to expand broadband connectivity all over Puerto Rico. It’s also another mark on the company’s commitment to helping close the digital divide, particularly in rural areas affected by the lack of high-speed internet service.
“Wireless technology is here to stay. Acquiring the 2.5 GHz licenses allows expanding our speeds and capacities to serve the rural and urban areas of Puerto Rico. 2021 will be a year full of growth and expansion for AeroNet”, explains Gino Villarini, AeroNet’s Founder and President.
Until last year, the 2.5 GHz licenses were part of the Educational Broadband Services system and were held by educational institutions all over the USA. The FCC’s recently changed the band rules to allow the educational institutions to divest their licenses to commercial entities.
Recently, with an investment of more than $11 million, the local company won licenses at the FCC’s first 5G mid-band CBRS auction. This auction made available the most spectrum licenses ever in a single FCC auction.
AeroNet is a renowned business high-speed internet service provider and is the sole Puerto Rican ISP to extend wireless and fiber networks. The company banks on advanced commercial-grade technology support secure, reliable, and dedicated high-speed broadband access at affordable rates. AeroNet is also the first local internet service provider to secure a listing in the Inc. 5000 list. For further information, please visit www.aeronetpr.com.
