At the Sept. 29 Town of Appomattox workshop meeting, councilman Nathan Simpson pointed out that now more than ever, internet access has become an integral part of both working adults and students of all ages alike.

He suggested creating a town-wide Wi-Fi coverage system — an idea, he said, that had been discussed a few years ago by the town. He asked if anyone on the town staff or council knew where the project had ended, suggesting that perhaps new technology may be able to resolve any barriers that arose in the past.

“I just wanted to start that discussion and see if any of the other council members had any feedback or had any desire to push that project forward,” said Simpson.

Councilman Paul Harvey suggested having B2X Online visit to provide a presentation on a possible solution for town-wide internet. (B2X Online pitched an internet proposal to the Appomattox County Board of Supervisors on Sept. 21.)
