viNGN Provides New Free Wi-Fi in Roosevelt Park St. Thomas and Loredon Boynes Sr. Dock in Cruz Bay St. John

December 8th 2017 – The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN), is pleased to announce its newest free Wi-Fi hot spot locations, in Roosevelt Park, St. Thomas and at the Loredon Boynes Sr. Dock in Cruz Bay on St. John. The Roosevelt Park location is central, offers seating, and provides a relaxed atmosphere, while the new Cruz Bay Ferry Dock location will be a boon to commuters. These newest additions bring the total number of viNGN hot spots to (twenty-two) 22.

As the territory’s recovery efforts continue, viNGN remains aware of the community’s challenges in accessing telecommunications and Internet services. In response to this need, there are currently five (5) Free Wi-Fi hot spots on St. John, eight (8) on St. Croix, and eight (8) on St. Thomas.

According to viNGN President and CEO Dr. Mark McGibbon, while some areas of the viNGN network were affected, the underground facilities remained intact throughout two historic Category 5 storms that impacted the territory over the course of two weeks. This enabled restoration efforts to move forward quickly, enabling local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to begin re-connecting their business and residential customers at a much faster pace.

“We got to work immediately after Irma, planning hot spots throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands, and establishing free temporary Internet access. Our first hot spots that were established on St. John are now part of the Global Disaster Immediate Response Team (GLOBAL DIRT) network. Anyone needing free Internet access may visit our web site at www.vingn.com and click on “Free viNGN Wi-Fi Hotspots” to view the full list,” he stated.
