An article posted recently in the St.Thomas about the continued efforts to deploy broadband in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The territory has contracted with Alcatel-Lucent to construct and deploy cable between St. Thomas and Water Island. The bill is estimated at $5.6 million.

This week’s hurricane activity is evidence that deploying these facilities is necessary to keep insular areas like the U.S. Virgin Islands connected to the mainland.
