VI Consortium: “viNGN’s service never failed”

The VI Consortium provided exciting stats and praise of viNGN’s fiber optic network which provided livestreams and free public Wi-Fi throughout the 65th St. Croix Christmas Festival week, captioning their Facebook post as follows:

“Importantly, viNGN’s service never failed, and the bandwidth provided to The Consortium facilitated seamless and buffer-free streaming. The service was appreciated by viewers around the world, with views coming from Japan to Canada and, of course, all across the U.S. mainland — and even from the Korean Peninsula — for a total of over a 1 million video views and over 1.9 million minutes of watch time from Dec. 26, 2017 to Jan 6, 2018, according to analytics provided by Facebook.”
