Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

IS THERE HIGH-SPEED INTERNET (BROADBAND) IN THE VIRGIN ISLANDS?

Definitely! We have several Internet Service Providers (ISPs) based here in the Virgin Islands to choose from, and they offer a variety of additional services such as networking, hosting, VoIP and more.

Major telecommunications networks

  • USVI: In 2015, the United States Virgin Islands qualified for inclusion on the American National Broadband Map since the completion of The Virgin Islands Next Generation Network, viNGN, a 100% fiber optic open network that interconnects St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas and Water Islands, and connecting the USVI to the world. viNGN sells broadband wholesale to its ISP partners.
  • Also in the USVI: Viya (formerly VITELCO then Innovative combined with Choice) is the local exchange carrier. AT&T has maintained a presence in the territory for decades for local telecom and connecting to the mainland.
  • BVI: In the British Virgin Islands, the company we knew as Cable and Wireless is now within the conglomerate C&W Business, providing connectivity between the BVI, the Caribbean, Latin America and the rest of the world.

HOW IS THE CONNECTIVITY IN THE USVI?

The U.S. Virgin Islands (in particular) are now home to some of the fastest Internet speeds available anywhere, with room to grow. There is a large Coaxial Hybrid network, and a Next Generation Network here that’s 100% Fiber-Optic. We have several Virgin Islands Internet Service Providers, which allows you to build in fail-overs to create redundancy and great up-time for connection to off-site (Cloud-based) servers.
