PRESS RELEASE – In a move that is sure to benefit hundreds of residents who reside in the town of Gros Islet, in addition to the large number of non-residents who flock to the vicinity of Marie Therese and Dauphine Streets to soak up the town’s weekly street parties, free and unlimited access to Wi-Fi services will now be available through the kind compliments of the leader of the Lucian People’s Movement (LPM), Therold Prudent.
Speaking ahead of the commencement date of service, which is scheduled for September 26th, 2014, Prudent stated, “This newest initiative is part of a broader plan that aims to reduce the financial constraints on young people, who would otherwise have to experience extreme frustration at being unable to use their electronic devices, given the very harsh economic conditions which currently exist in our country.”
He added, “Not having a job for a prolonged period of time is a terrible experience for any young person to endure. However, finding yourself with limited access to knowledge and your ability to navigate Saint Lucia’s corridors to the wider world, a cut off can only add greater stress and frustration to a young person who is battling to find relevance within Saint Lucian society.”
Prudent concluded that while there are limitations in terms of what he is able to achieve on behalf of the people of Gros Islet given his current status as an unelected opposition figure, this does not in any way inhibit him from championing their cause and doing everything within his power to ease their pain until such time when he is duly elected as the next district representative of Gros Islet.
The free Wi-Fi service, which is available for connection through the link LPM-2016, will be initiated in other communities in the near future.
