"With NComputing, we are not just opening a world of opportunities to citizens, but we are doing more with less, conserving energy and optimizing processes with less investment in maintenance and zero cost of paper," said Sandra Torres López, president and chairman of the la Junta Telecomunicaciones of Puerto Rico (JRTC). "The public policy established by the Hon. Luis Fortuño has given the path to be followed by the regulatory board. With an investment of $3 million, all of Puerto Rico will have free access to Internet in a period of six to eight months."
"We are thrilled to be working with NComputing and Puerto Rico to deliver a simple and affordable way for more students and teachers to gain access to the latest technology, ultimately optimizing learning and helping students prepare to compete in the global economy," said Keren Henriquez, education industry lead at Microsoft. "With our alliance with NComputing and the use of MultiPoint System 2011, our hope is for great reception through the school community that will help facilitate the learning process for teachers and students in Puerto Rico schools to strengthen the process of teaching and learning."
"The challenge Puerto Rico has is that many remote areas lack technology because the cost of energy is too high, and there's limited budget and resources. What's needed is a simple solution with a small energy footprint that optimizes existing resources in the most cost-effective manner," said Cristian Llodra, commercial director for Latin America and Caribbean at NComputing. "With NComputing, Puerto Rico will give its citizens Internet access for everyone, anywhere, at any time.
