Galapagos Islands going wireless   1 comment

The Galapagos Islands (Ecuador) will be the next province of Ecuador to convert into a free wireless (wi-fi) region, thanks to the wireless connection pilot project REDGAL.

This past Friday, the digital newspaper “El Cuidadano” announced that tests are currently being conducted on network connections to provide free internet to all of the Galapagos Islands population, using equipment that allows for large coverage with a bandwidth between 1.5 and 2.0 Mbps.

The project was spearheaded by the Galapagos National Institute (Instituto Nacional Galápagos) at the end of August 2008.
