 Well said, Alejandro!  Yessir, very true.

The major disability in the Caribbean is access.  Some of us are hoping
that development of IXPs in the Caribbean will act exactly in this way,
stimulating  growth in local content development which in turn might drive
deeper broadband penetration.

We have to use push/pull strategies to get out from under this one.
