ST. THOMAS – The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN) has recently announced that access to superfast high-speed Internet service is merely a phone call away. Businesses and residences in Frydenhoj, Red Hook, and Smith Bay on St Thomas, Christiansted and Gallows Bay on St. Croix and Cruz Bay on St. John now have the option of connecting to the highly anticipated fast and secure network, simply by reaching out to their current Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) for more details on packages.

Our mission to provide world-class, open access, high-speed, 100% fiber optic broadband services to the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Caribbean, and the world via local, regional, and international partnerships is only the beginning of a new life in the Virgin Islands.

Internet service providers such as: High Tide Solutions, ADM Technologies, Alliance Data (SmartNet), Orbitel Access, Broadband VI, One Stop Wireless, Innovative Fibernet, Choice Communications, Surge Broadband Communications, and Fusion Solutions now have the capability to begin servicing residences and businesses with up to 1 Gbps of bandwidth (1000 Mbps), a drastic increase from the 1-5 Mbps currently used by most businesses and residences in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The advantage to our current speeds in comparison to previously offered speeds is the difference between light speed and snail speed. Click a YouTube video on viNGN’s network and you watch it instantly. Click a YouTube video on anything else and you’re buffering!

The increased access to broadband and the implementation of applications enabled by viNGN’s high-speed network, promotes efficiency and improves the overall quality of life for Virgin Islanders transforming daily life in areas including telecommunications, health, energy, education, government, and other applications.

The Next Generation of technology is here and we would like to invite everyone to celebrate a historic event soon to be announced.
