    With this outrage notices, I now believe the BVIEC is on it’s way for greater and better service.
    Informing the public on outage schedule is very important. A matter of fact that how advance countries does it.
    Don’t just turn it off; keep up the good works and added improvement.

    Your sterile intellect is a disgrace to all BVIslanders. It’s quite easy to write personal unverifiable “words” in cyber space.

    No genuine native degrades his/her country, no matter the circumstances.
