At the close of what seems to have been a pretty fraught meeting between residents and local interest groups, councilors voted to keep the community network in operation. The result comes after a long-term campaign against it on the grounds that it represents a health risk.


In the end it seems that it was a combination of reason and sound economic sense that won the day, with arguments that the town needs the network to compete putting paid to the nay sayers.

We think it’s the right result. After all, there’s currently no empirical evidence that Wi-Fi has any effect on health. And until such time as there is, we shouldn’t deprive this rural community of what must be nothing short of a life-saver.
