Liberty to upgrade triple-play network

20 Dec 2005

Puerto Rican triple-play cable provider Liberty Cablevision plans to spend USD35 million on the upgrade and expansion of its network in 2006, with the aim of boosting its subscriber base by up to 70% during the year. The investment includes USD12 million for migrating all remaining analogue customers to digital services by June 2006. Liberty provides cable television services to around 125,000 homes in the east, central and northern regions of Puerto Rico, around half of which take digital services. It offers a broadband internet service in ten towns under the banner Liberty Links, and has around 35,000 customers. Part of the upgrade plan includes the doubling of all broadband speeds by January 2006 at no extra cost to users, and the introduction of HDTV and digital video recording services.
