Community-wide Wi-Fi service is now available in Boydton. On Wednesday, Microsoft and Lake Country Satellite set the launch of a free community Wi-Fi service in town. The project was developed in response to a community need, according to Robert Sloan, Microsoft’s director of data center community development. Speaking at Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative’s Empower Broadband launch party in September, Sloan said Microsoft is committed to improving the communities where it has operations, and hence the tech giant pursued the Wi-Fi project in response to demands identified by local residents. Sloan noted that access to Wi-Fi was a significant need in the region.
