Four County EMC Provides Additional Wifi Hotspots in Duplin and Pender Counties
As the Coronavirus pandemic continues, it is vital that communities stay connected to the internet – classes have gone digital and many workers are now tele-commuting. In response, Four County EMC has created three WiFi hotspots in Pender and Duplin Counties:
Duplin Winery, 505 N. Sycamore St., Rose Hill
World Line Networks, 310 N. Norwood St., Wallace
Penderlea School, Willard
The Rose Hill and Wallace locations are public and available to anyone who is in need of broadband access. The hotspot at Penderlea School will enable students with school-issued Chrome books to access educational material while schools remain closed.
These hotspots are in addition to the four Wi-Fi hotspots created in March by Four County’s partnership with Pender County Schools and ATMC. Those hotspot locations are: Pender High School, Heidi Trask Senior High School, Topsail High School, and the Pender County Public Library in Burgaw.
“During this difficult time, we want to ensure broadband access is widely and easily available to members of our communities,” said Doug Krynicki, fiber business development manager. All seven locations have a range of several hundred feet and are available seven days a week.
