FRUITLAND - As the pandemic continues to keep people apart, several businesses in town have stepped up to keep the public connected to one another. Among them is Farmers Mutual Telephone Company, which reminds the public that it offer a pair of easily accessible public WiFi hotspots.
Dan Greig, general manager of Farmers Mutual, reached out to the newspaper to remind readers how to find them.
“FMTC has had a wifi hotspot available at the Fruitland downtown park for several years, and we just set up one at Mesa Park as well for people to pull into the parking lot and use,” said Greig.
He also reminds the public that Farmers Mutual just completed a two-year “Fiber to the Home” project, which he said has enabled higher browsing speeds for his customers.
“This could not have come at a more convenient time for those customers in Fruitland, as there are so many people working from home and kids doing their schoolwork from home, therefore needing to bump up their speed to accommodate the increased demand.”
Greig said a similar project is underway in the Nu Acres area.
