Chilean rural community gets access to information

Chilean rural community gets access to information thanks to UNESCO-supported project

In November 2010, a high-speed wireless Internet connection was installed in the Andean town of Los Queñes as part of an innovative connectivity initiative to bridge the digital gap in rural areas of Chile. This project, implemented by UNESCO’s Office in Santiago, the Regional Government of Maule, the University of Talca and the city of Romeral, provides the citizens and schools of the Maule region with access to information and new opportunities.
