Help Irma victims in US Virgin Islands with unlimited internet access!

This petition had 130 supporters

Living in South Florida and recently going without electricity for only 5 days after hurricane Irma, I saw how quickly I used the data on my cell phone.

My best friend's mother and father live in the US Virgin Islands, which was hit HARD by Irma. To make matters worse, hurricane Maria is hitting them as I write. My friend mentioned that her mom has already used all the data on her cell phone for the month. Without electricity your wifi won't work. And without access to wifi, you can easily use your allotted data in no time just trying to get information on weather, tracking down supplies, finding gasoline, or searching for how to repair your damaged roof. 

Many people in the United States Virgin Islands are homeless now. For the lucky ones who still have homes, it will be months before most homes on the islands have power restored. Can you imagine yourself in that situation? Now imagine it with limited or no internet access to find the essentials you need to get back on your feet. 

Let's try to help them by calling on AT&T and Sprint PCS (the main cellphone providers in USVI) and any other providers there to offer UNLIMITED DATA to the citizens of the US Virgin Islands for the next few months!

Their customers have paid their bills for years and it's time for AT&T and Sprint to pay them back with some unlimited access so they can contact loved ones, search to find limited supplies, find where to buy gas for the generator, lookup first aid info....they have a million things to do to put their lives back together and they need data now more than ever!

Please, sign the petition and, especially if you are a customer of AT&T or Sprint, contact them and ask that they help our friends and fellow countrymen in the United States Virgin Islands.
