|Kimberly||To answer THE most popular question we're getting offline, here goes:
Speedwise, WiFi is comparable to Coralwave, and you wouldn't be locked into a wired computer [meaning that you could take your PC with you within a certain range of Harbour Island, and check for e-mail etc. without having to physically hook up].

|Fig Tree News Team||Can we see a show of hands for those islanders -- local business people, hoteliers, homeowners, students, sailors, motorboaters, marina managers -- who would be interested in accessing WiFi high-speed Internet access in the immediate area?
Monthly costs would run approx $50/month, with several points of presence up and down Harbour Island and North Eleuthera. You'd have access to all web-based e-mail, 'Net surfing and design support. We'd need about 100 folks on board to get this sort of project going, which would be managed locally in concert with the hosting company in Nassau.
