Send And Receive

The BBC discusses a simple set up for sending and receiving email at remote locations, in this case the Solomon Islands. Key to this solution is WaveMail, software that is being used by sailors as well since it is especially developed with low bandwith situations in mind.
“The system runs on software called WaveMail, which works with the HF radios in villages. “We are using old technology but it is robust,” said Mr Rausi. “This laptop is quite old but it does the work. In the end we have to look at what is affordable in villages. The People First Network is not about the technology. It is about improving the standard of living of people in rural areas. “The social side is more important than the technology.””
