We helped out with the installation of network antennas and wifi equipment for schools around the island. These network nodes not only provide internet for the schools, but also contribute to the resilience of the island-wide network.

The next phase of this project is to outfit each node with solar power and a battery backup to ensure the integrity of the network even during the frequent grid power outages.

Big thanks to Generation Gives for getting this project off the ground and supplying the network hardware to set it up and to SBG on Vieques, local provider of High Speed Internet, who will provide the internet service.
