Islanet Inc.'s plan to offer wireless broadband WiMAX throughout Puerto Rico has been successfully launched, according to an announcement Wednesday by Islanet and Navini Networks, which is deploying the service with its Ripwave MX system.

The firms said an initial phase has been deployed in greater Mayaguez where more than 600 customers have signed up for the high-speed Internet service. The service enables subscribers to use mobile WiMAX anywhere in Islanet's coverage area.

"Internet users in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean are ready to upgrade from dialup to personal broadband," said Gary Lasher, president and CEO of Islanet, in a statement. "Given the demand, Islanet will expand its Volare coverage on the West coast to surrounding municipalities."
