Exact title: Students from the School Luis Escobar Lara" Los Queñes, connecting and using internet for the first time during the ceremony

UNESCO launched a high-speed wireless internet project in the Andean town of Los Queñes.

Promoted by the Communication and Information Programme at the Regional Bureau of Education for Latin America and the Caribbean (OREALC/UNESCO Santiago), the Regional Government of Maule, the University of Talca and the city of Romeral, three wireless internet (Wi-Fi) antennas were installed, creating a multimedia community centre which strengthened a community radio service that includes IPTV.

With speeds equivalent to the services available in an urban area of the region, the wireless connection transmits from Romeral city hall, runs through the Guaico Centro School to Cerro Pelado hill, where it connects with the town of Los Queñes. The project allows residents in the zone to access new job and training opportunities, helps to boost tourism and develop local production.
