Critical Hub Networks announced the launch of Optico Fiber, Puerto Rico’s first Gigabit Fiber-to-the-Home Internet service. The service will be available exclusively for residential customers, and will offer upload and download speeds of up to 1 Gbps, that is equal to 1,000 Mbps with unlimited data transfer.
Under a model similar to Google Fiber, Critical Hub is making Optico Fiber available in communities (also known as “fiberhoods”) which meet minimum signup goals. Residents can signup for the service through the Optico Fiber website at optico.criticalhub.com. There is a $10 registration fee, which will be applied towards the customer’s first bill once service is installed. This fee is fully refundable if the resident chooses to cancel prior to the end of the signup period, or in the event that a fiberhood does not meet its goal.
The first fiberhoods which can signup for Optic Fiber are within the Municipality of San Juan. The initial launch includes 7 fiberhoods, although Critical Hub will continuously open new fiberhoods as the engineering of the new regions are completed.
