DSPR Teams With viNGN to Provide Free WiFi at Cramer’s Park Beach
CHRISTIANSTED — Department of Sports, Parks and Recreation (DSPR) Commissioner nominee Calvert White announced today a partnership with the Virgin Islands Next Generation Network, Inc. (viNGN) to provide free WiFi access to St. Croix residents at Cramer’s Park beach.
The partnership with viNGN will provide internet connectivity at Cramer’s Park for campers to use during the Easter holiday season and will remain active through Wednesday, May 1.
Governor Bryan said today the initiative is a creative step forward as it takes safety precautions against limited communications in the area and thanked Commissioner Nominee White and viNGN for their contributions towards enriching the visitor experience at Cramer’s Park.
“These are the creative and common-sense initiatives that are simple ways we can make our community safe and improve the quality of life for Virgin Islanders,” Bryan said. “The availability of WiFi at Cramer’s Park is more than just a means of convenience for residents, but a way to address a real public safety concern by providing access to wireless communication in an area affected by very limited cellular service. I thank Commissioner Nominee White and viNGN for their efforts to provide an improved visitor experience to St. Croix residents visiting the park.”
Department of Sports, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Nominee Calvert White also celebrated the partnership at Cramer’s Park and announced his intentions to extend the collaboration with viNGN to provide internet access to all SPR facilities.
“This new resource will enhance the visiting experience of the community at Cramer’s Park by providing an infrastructure for Web surfing, social and educational activities, and WiFi Calling,” Commissioner Nominee White said. “As we continue to make improvements, I hope that all SPR facilities will soon be able to provide internet access to our patrons as they engage in their recreation activities.”
viNGN has 15 free public WiFi hot spots throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands.
