viNGN making inroads on St. John Internet Connectivity


The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN) is pleased to note that for the week of November 13, 2017, significant progress was made in Cruz Bay, St. John, with several businesses and government offices back online!

viNGN vanThe island of St. John had been literally severed from all utilities in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. viNGN moved quickly with partners Love City Strong, LoveIT.vi, First Phase Datacomm and Computer Express to facilitate free temporary connections to support a number of Cruz Bay businesses, and also set up 5 free public Wi-Fi hot spots (now named “DIRT Free”).

Several locations now enjoy Internet connectivity through viNGN partner Internet Service Providers:

Bureau of Motor Vehicles
Cruz Bay Fire Station (Zulu Company)
Fire Administration Building (Cruz Bay)
Human Services Department
Internal Revenue Bureau
Mongoose Junction
St. John Marketplace
The Marketplace
