This rural resident association received an early Christmas present today in the form of five new laptops which have been updated, configured and free software installed by Study Parks.
Talking with members of the committee it's looking like the launch event will be taking place in January 2013 with digital inclusion sessions running thereafter but only after connecting them to a competent broadband service provider. Competent as in more than the meagre 1-2 mbps currently on offer!
Cue a local WiFi broadband provider - Quickline. I have managed to negotiate a 10-15mbps community connection offer for 'rural' Get IT Together projects. I will be supporting the association in completing the application and getting them connected ready for their launch in 2013.
Sorry to those projects who see 1-2mbps as a luxury!
