Having the Internet allows you
to surf and search all over the world. You can send and receive email,
look up lost friends and relatives, do research, or even chat with
people around the world. The Internet is a very versatile tool. It is a
virtually endless pool of information and fun. Children can even use the
Internet to do research for school reports and play games.
We provide Dial-Up and Wireless
Internet (768/768 Kbs or 1.0 Mbs). Dial-Up is $18.00 a month. 768/768
Kbs Wireless is $34.00 a month and the 1.0 Mbs is $45.00 a month. Both
Wireless systems require an installation fee of
$500.00. (The fee includes the cost of installing the Wireless and
the equipment used.)
Wireless Internet works like
this: A small antenna is placed somewhere in the city Ė for example:
atop city hall, a radio tower, water tower or similar location. For up
to 5 miles, provided they have a clear line of sight, businesses and
residents then have high-speed access available to them. All that is
needed is a small antenna plugged into each computer; this is the
wireless connection. Hard wires still play a role in transferring the
data from the main city antenna to the Internet provider.
