Computer spread lifts internet service

Logging on in Lawrence has never been easier with the town's cafes and restaurants being fitted out with computers so more visitors can enter cyberspace.

A free wireless internet service was introduced in the town in January, which allowed visitors to go online with their laptops, using a wireless signal transmitted between two points in the main business district.

Now, the people behind that venture and the Tuapeka-Lawrence Community Company have joined forces to expand the service.

The company has helped buy several computers that will be placed in the town's cafes to offer free internet access for all visitors.

The same service is also provided at the town's information centre-museum building.

When visitors log on the free service they are welcomed on the Lawrence internet "splash page" before being connected to the internet.
