View the full invitation to this viNGN Broadband Business & Technology Meeting on our web site.

All CAI’s will receive free of charge, all equipment and an actual physical fiber connection linking their sites to viNGN’s fiber optic network providing “middle mile” connectivity of bandwidth to these locations. Then, the CAI’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) will connect into the viNGN-installed equipment, and provide “last mile” bandwidth connectivity to these locations.

Attendance at this meeting is imperative, as the Virgin Islands Next Generation Network, Inc. (viNGN) has now begun to connect fiber to all CAIs beginning with those in Fredricksted and then continuing with those on St. Thomas.

CAI representatives are advised to RSVP to or call (340) 715-8581 ext. 2239.
