Rural Internet Success Story

The E-Future Centre is a supporter of the Alberta SuperNet. Recently the village of Galahad, population 160, got high speed Internet access, which changed the way business can be conducted in the village.

Paul Marck (2006). “Galahad gets up to speed“. Retrieved March 21, 2006, shows the impact of e-business and high speed internet in a rural community. This article shows how it is near impossible to conduct business on dial up Internet. There are issues discussed such as .pdf files taking way too long to download, lost time waiting for large downloads, computer crashes from dial up and how information from around the world can affect the agricultural industry which is so important to the village of Galahad.
