San Juan Cable LLC (d/b/a OneLink Communications) was a triple player telecommunications company that provides broadband Internet access, VoIP, and television services in Puerto Rico. The company was owned by MidOcean Partners and Crestview Partners, which paid $250 million in June 2005 to buy the property from Adelphia. In June 25, 2012, it was rumored that Liberty Global may buy OneLink for $560 million USD.[1] The rumors came true as Liberty Global acquired Onelink Communications.[2]

Liberty announced on December 27, 2012 that OneLink customers will no longer have a capped internet which the previous limit was 40GB per month and that now it is unlimited.
