Spark: Good news for Taranaki

This recent article from Netguide

Spark has rolled out 4G across existing cell cites in the Taranaki region, the telecommunications firm revealed today.
The move enables Taranaki residents to have better access to Spark mobile coverage.
Colin Brown, general manager of Networks for Spark, says the vastly improved mobile network will allow locals and visitors to the area to stay constantly connected with family, friends and colleagues.
“We’re always looking to improve access to mobile coverage across New Zealand and we’re excited that Taranaki is now able to access the benefits of 4G,” Brown says.

Two New Classes running in Taupo and Turangi

Two Computers in Homes classes in the Taupo area began training at the beginning of May.
Tongariro Area School in Turangi is hosting the class of ten families.  Their trainer, Dion Nurse, is very capable and popular.  
Comments from Dion's students:

Ki a ora Christina and Dion,
I have already learnt a lot in tonights lesson.
Thank you. I am very grateful.
In today's lesson I finished filling and signing the forms required. We talked about internet browsers, how to bookmark ( new to me), tabs, security when logging in. Thank you for the opportunity to learn. Engari, Dion, you are the bomb, churr for the tuition.

Nga mihinui atu ki a korua

Kia ora Christina.raua ko Dion. Nga mihi ki a korua.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the chance in advancing my knowledge to do with Computers.
I need to keep up - especially with my grand children, and tertiary studies, as well as other areas.
Looking forward to the challenge.

  And in Taupo,  another nine families are training at Central Plateau Reap.  They are excited to learn more about how to use a computer and they and their children are looking forward to graduation day, when they can take their computers home.
