In this fast moving world one has to constantly be keep up with technology, among them internet. A 2013 survey of Caribbean Internet Service Providers revealed that internet in Belize is not only among the slowest in the region, but it is the most expensive. Hence the service cannot be afforded by everyone. Knowing how important internet access is especially for students, Gregorio Papas Garcia, PUP Standard Bearer Candidate for Corozal Bay and his team have embarked in a special project that will see the launching of free WIFI access at the Corozal Central Park. According to Garcia, the project will be launched tomorrow.

“It is going to be there for all public use; students, tourists, all people that transit the area so it is free WIFI and the user named is “Team Papas” of course it doesn’t have any password, you know it is for the general use for the public of Corozal.”

“No, it has never been done before it is something that we are trying and we do expect a lot of thing that will come out of it, students need to do their homework, some people need to access internet for different business ventures and this is what we are trying to do, help a bit at a time.”

“Well, definitely it is a team effort, it is Team Papas some of the members suggested it and then we just try to put the whole package together with the help of all the friends.”

“So this is going to benefit mostly students?”

“Yes mostly students but as we know many people are into technology and stuff like that at this time and so if fact it is everyone but students will definitely get big booze on this.  We should be starting off with 2Mgs but of course we will try it out and see how it works and definitely we will step it up if we need to.”


The launching will take place at 8:30am.
