Microsoft And Lake Country Satellite Roll Out Free Wi-Fi in Boydton, Virginia

Microsoft Corp. and Lake Country Satellite on Wednesday announced the launch of a free community Wi-Fi service in Boydton. Community members identified to Microsoft’s Datacenter Community Development that access to Wi-Fi is a significant need in the region. “Internet access is very important to this community as it helps our residents fully participate in the 21st century economy,” said Mecklenburg County Administrator Wayne Carter. “That is why we advocated for this project, and why we appreciate this contribution by Microsoft and Lake Country Satellite.” The community Wi-Fi system recently completed its testing phase and can be accessed through any wireless device through the network ID Boydton Wi-Fi. Users can log in to the network for two-hour increments.
