Residents of Haida Gwaii BC now have high-speed Web connections thanks to GwaiiTel and its Haida Gwaii Community Network, launched in November. The service rides on a radio link – the longest over-water Internet transmission in the world (see Telemanagement 240, November 1, 2006). Financial partners included the BC government, Telus Corp., and the Gwaii Trust. "We had to overcome many technical and business challenges, but the Gwaii Trust is very proud to have brought this essential infrastructure into our communities," said trust chairman Miles Richardson.
