Farmers in Veryvine, a farming community in Francios, Vermont will now be able to farm and still keep connected to their families at home as they now have internet connection.
Veryvine is known to be a dead zone for mobile connectivity because of its topography and the lack of public mobile cellular infrastructure.
According to a press release, this is changing because of a project undertaken jointly by CEDCO, P2P Network Communication, Internet Society of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Flow Saint Vincent.
The Veryvine Community Network Project was launched on December 13 and will provide internet access to farmers in the Veryvine Francois Vermont area.
Serveral individuals spend hours in the Veryvine community on a daily basis conducting their farming activities but are cut off from the rest of the world as they have limited access to telecommunications services.
This is the first of numerous initiatives launched in the small farming community of Vermont since the beginning of the year, with more announcements to be made for 2023.
