Now a postman connect all rural areas of developing countries through wirelessly. A United States entrepreneur has introduced an “Internet postman” to rural areas of India, Cambodia, Rwanda, Costa Rica and Paraguay. United Villages will provide the Wi-Fi service.

The Massachusetts company has developed a technology to connect isolated villages through wirelessly to the Internet. Villagers can use pre-paid cards to write e-mails or record phone messages and save their words at computer kiosks installed in schools and community halls. The company will provide short range Wi-Fi antennas and a hard disk on board pass through villages and automatically picks stored emails and voice messages. Once the web reaches Internet connection area, it relays emails and messages to their destinations through the web. The system makes it easier for villagers to buy essential products such as fertilizers, pesticides, books and medicines for delivery the next day via the bus.
