PRESS RELEASE: Students and Staff at the Ebenezer Thomas Primary School in Sea Cow’s Bay are taking a step up back in the online world thanks to CCT BVI.

The telecoms company donated a GOFASTLTE Modem with complimentary internet service to the school which had no internet access following the passage of Hurricane Irma.

Principal Sybil Hodge reached out for assistance and CCT stepped up to the plate to provide aid. CCT along with the Principle visited most of the classes and other rooms to see the extent of the damages.

Commenting on the donation, CCT BVI Marketing Manager Recaldo Richardson said: “CCT is committed to assisting in rebuilding our community. We are going to look into what else we can do to assist the school in 2018.”

This donation serves as an introduction of ‘CT Cares’ which is the telecom company’s community service initiative to be in full swing from 2018.

CCT BVI – voted Best Cellular Service Provider in the BVI – is the BVI’s Premier 4G LTE Network. To learn more about CCT BVI, visit www.cctbvi.com.

    This is a great gesture, but did they donate a generator with it? Most of SCB has power, but not the school and nearby buildings

      How about our government get its priority together and decide who is essential and thereafter have power restored in those areas. They quickly realize food was essential because a certain person own a supermarket so to not make it look bad the supermarkets in town got power. Yet to date the telecoms can’t get electricity at certain cell sites which requires thousands to keep generators fueled. If the ability to use your cell phone isn’t an essential service, what is?? Yet you want them give more to the school. Go take a %#%#ing seat these telecoms already running high costs since Irma.

      Is CCT the only corporate company in the BVI? The way I see it is that they are upholding their corporate responsibility. What are other companies doing? Like the service (gas) stations that recently made millions from us???? Matter of fact they still are making millions. Let’s see when last they donated to our community.
