THE ST. CROIX CONNECTION
Officials in St. Croix are currently putting in about $300 million worth of new infrastructure to expand local connectivity. The main goal is to attract new businesses. But the infrastructure is also perfect for telecommuters. Another benefit for telecommuters is the region's two new co-working spaces. One is on St. Croix, and the other is on the neighboring island of St. Thomas. Telecommuters can get memberships to work in these broadband hubs. “And at 5 p.m. you walk out the front door and run off the pier and jump into the Caribbean,” Bauer says.
