British Virgin Islands Continues Developing Internet Infrastructure


The British Virgin Islands has established an internet exchange point; BVI-IX is an investment that would help the jurisdiction to strengthen its telecommunications infrastructure and encourage the development of local digital content. Now, the so called 'phase two' was initiated by BVI officials, by words of chief technical officer of the BVI Telecommunications Regulatory Commission.

BVI is working with the Caribbean Telecommunications Union, an inter-governmental telecommunications policy organisation, and US-based non-profit firm Packet Clearing House (PCH), to develop their IXP to the next level

During the coming months, technical training and workshops will be organized on network security, local content and electronic commerce, to help the local market realise possible benefits.
