This is the latest example of Taiwan and Saint Lucia working together to bridge the digital divide in the beautiful Caribbean country. Same service has been provided to the communities of Dennery North, Canaries and Micoud earlier this year.

The launch of the GiNet service in the Capital City of Castries is scheduled for 19 December 2018.

GiNet opens up various opportunities for the students, entrepreneurs, employees, farmers and even housewives of Saint Lucia. For them, the world is now really their oyster.
