Flow – the only full-service telecommunications provider in the BVI – suffered significant damage to its mobile and data equipment during the hurricane but was nevertheless able to maintain connectivity to large parts of the islands, particularly in Tortola, even during the height of the hurricane.
Flow remains focused on restoring its telecommunications infrastructure in the British Virgin Islands, and supporting the territory’s rebuilding efforts.
