Wi-fi web reaches farmers in Peru

Wi-fi web reaches farmers in Peru. BBC reports that a Wifi net in Peru is linking farmers to get up to date info on market prices, of course local residents and students benefit too. (Via DDN blogs)

Of course, there are different ways to accomplish the market price info sharing. My friend Gordon Bell in Uganda put together a daily radio broadcast of prices, as well as an SMS network to get real-time price reports.
