WiFi101 has the dual goal of providing affordable connection to the Internet to the community but also is a training laboratory for students leaning computer networking technology. We have received a grant from the California Emerging Technologic Fund for a program to train computer network technicians. As part of their on the job experience they will provide computer technical support for the community at a very nominal fee. The fee that is charged will enable us to pay the more advanced students as paid interns and will offset some of the costs of running the network.
