USF to establish more community access points islandwide

The Universal Service Fund (USF) will be setting up more Community Access Points across the island this year.
 
Director of  Projects at the agency, Kwan Wilson, says St. James and Portland are among rural areas being targeted for new sites.
 
He says the Fund will also be looking at increasing the number of  free Wi-Fi zones in a drive to facilitate greater Internet access for Jamaicans. 
 
Secured, public hotspots are already available in high traffic areas in Kingston and St Andrew, Manchester, and St. Elizabeth.
 
The USF has, over the years, established over 300 Community Access Points in an effort to bring information communications technologies (ICT) to underserved areas in Jamaica.
 
These locations enable persons to use the Internet at minimal or no cost for research, bill payments, educational purposes, communication, business, marketing, and social networking.
