Among the priorities of the Internet Society include: open development of standards, protocols, and administration of the Internet’s technical infrastructure and also education of countries under development. The organization is comprised of independent users, businesses, non-profit organizations and government entities.

Recognizing the need for leadership in the areas of public policy, technical standards as well as social and economic development of the Internet in Puerto Rico, a group of forty entrepreneurs, professionals, educators and artists united to establish the Puerto Rico Chapter of the Internet Society in 2001.

Who we are

We are a membership not-for-profit organization founded in 2001 to foster the Internet's use, evolution, and open development for the benefit of all people in Puerto Rico and throughout the World.  Our members are made up of energetic, enthusiastic, and committed individuals from the public at-large.

The formation of the Internet Society of Puerto Rico (ISOC-PR) allows us to represent the island in international forums, which set forth the rules of the Internet world. Observing the Internet as a medium that has maintained sustained growth in the Puerto Rico, we must present a voice globally to the active Internet international community.
