VI Gets $1.4 Million for Broadband Mapping
Some local telecom companies must be loving this:
The Virgin Islands has been awarded about $1.4 million for mapping the territory's existing broadband network and planning expansion of its telecommunications facilities, according to a statement issued Sunday by Government House.
The federal stimulus money will allow the territory to begin a process to provide reliable broadband services to the territory's residents and businesses, Gov. John deJongh Jr. said in the statement.
