The Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) has begun installing internet services in flood shelters throughout Trinidad and Tobago.
TSTT says it is being done as part of its continued commitment to national service and in particular ensuring that the national community remains properly connected even in times of natural disasters.
A statement by TSTT said Planning and Development Minister and Member of Parliament for Arouca/Maloney, Camille Robinson-Regis was on hand to witness the first of these installations today at the shelter located at the Arouca Community Centre.
That shelter currently houses two families but expects to accommodate as many as 50 more families.
Internet service was installed at La Horquetta and the team has moved to Pinto Road, Arima.
TSTT notes that all internet services are free of charge.
