Broadband campaign needs support, says Johnny

Expat Saint Johnny Clingham has expressed dismay on his blog that few people on St Helena have backed the campaign to secure high-speed broadband for the island. He fears islanders don’t understand what they’re missing.

The entire island – population 4,000 – shares less than half the bandwidth found in many UK housesholds. Johnny has written in the past about Saints risking a month’s wages if they exceeded their limited quota of time online.

‘Most people on the island cannot stay on Facebook for more than 10 minutes a day because they cannot afford the internet,’ says Johnny.

He notes that even Saints in the UK aren’t signing up to support the campaign – though this could be because of difficulties getting the message out.

The story’s been picked up by the BBC News website for Brazil, here.
