There was no Internet to worry about after Hugo. Times have changed.

Hey Beeski, once the power starts to come back on how are we looking for BBVI towers?
Looks like there are a lot of towers already up and running on STX already. I see you have Gas City hooked up. Does that tower cover all of La Grande Princess or is there more than one tower there?

There are 2 towers that cover Princess, both have service, not all AP's on the tower are working. We had to triage re-connecting customers. We started with critical businesses to allow the island to function:
- supermarkets / food distribution (SNAP and credit cards)
- gas stations
- insurance companies
- hardware stores
- airports
- shipping companies
- hospitals / doctors offices
- drug stores
- schools
- FEMA / Coast Guard
- hotels

Now we are connecting businesses, restaurants, Govt offices.
Next we can get to residential customers.
If you are not working at home, if possible send an email to office@broadband.vi with your name, phone number, physical address and account number if you have it. Else stop by the office.
I have almost completed the tower plan for publication. Dates, sequence, etc.
Soon come
