High Speed Wireless Internet Service Comes to Gunflint

Wild Blue, a new Internet provider is offering broadband Internet service to rural residents and business. The company's Internet services come to the user by satellite. While broadband service is available in most urban area through ground phone or cable TV lines, until now it was rarely available in more remote rural area such as the Gunflint Trail.

Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B is one of several Gunflint Trail businesses with Wild Blue's broadband service. Acording to Barbara Young, co-owner of Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B, "having high speed internet services is great, waiting for documents to download through our old dialup service was really a drag." Young, when on to state, "we are now also providing wireless service to all our rooms in the B&B. We have several regular guests on work-play vacations that set-up their office in their rooms and use the Internet to conduct their business. While our dialup service worked for them, I'm sure they are really going to enjoy having access to high speed wireless service now."

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
