    Good question, but at&t has very deep government contracts and connections and both at&t and VZW are frequently used by government institutions so it seems plausible that they were able to hitch a ride more easily?

    Puerto Rico seems to have dropped off the news cycle. Anyone have any updates? Neville Ray tweets some pictures from time to time but no captions make for not much of a story.

    The Governor keeps talking about Sat-COWs being distributed in towns around the island. I assume these are Satellite Cells on Wheels.

    In the wake of the devastating Category 5 storm Hurricane Maria, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has agreed to make up to USD76.9 million immediately available for the restoration of communications networks in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. As such, eligible telecommunications carriers (ETCs) operating in the two territories are permitted to opt for a single advance payment of up to seven months of high-cost support to assist with their immediate needs and anticipated large repair costs in restoring their communications networks.
    As of 4 October 86.3% of Puerto Rican cell sites were out of service, and all counties in Puerto Rico, except Bayamon, Guaynabo, San Juan, and Toa Baja have more than 75% of their cell sites out of service. Further, 27 of the 78 counties have 100% of their cell sites out of service. In the USVI meanwhile, 66.0% of cell sites are out of service, with 100% of cell sites on the island of St John inactive.
