Mexican town creates wireless network

Mexico City, Aug 20 (EFE).- Villa Talea de Castro, a town in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, is creating its own cellular telephone network due to lack of interest on the part of wireless companies in serving the mountain community of 2,500 people. "The neighboring communities are interested in the project so the antennas can be linked in an autonomous community network," Villa Talea de Castro secretary Alejandro Lopez Canseco said in a telephone interview with Efe. The town plans to acquire more equipment and provide the existing gear to another community, Lopez said.
