Fast Internet Connection

I’ve been plagued and frustrated from the use of the USB modem I’ve been using at the house. At the town hall here in Boqueron there is what is called an “Infoplaza.” Many towns have them. I know there is one in Potrerillos though I never visited it. The one here in Boqueron has eight computers and a wifi connection. That’s what I’m using now, and it’s FAST. Much faster than the connection I had at the house on the side of the mountain, even. The infoplaza is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will be interesting to see if the wifi system is turned off on Sundays or if I can come up and sit under the cover of the basketball court which is about 80 feet away. If I can do that then I’ll be able to make Skype calls which the USB  modem at home won’t support. My next move is to unplug and see if I can do that, and also to check the USB modem because there is a  cell phone tower right behind the town hall.
