  3. 3. Why Internet Access is Essential?  Internet became primary sources of news due to the remoteness of the village.  The nurses use the Internet to search for medical and pharmaceutical information.  Farmers use the Internet to find crop disease information.  Tourists can send e-mail, update their travel blogs, and upload photos.  Tourist guides use e-mail to communicate with their clients and to get referrals.  Internet chat and VoIP to communicate with friends and families.www.mimos.my © 2008 MIMOS Berhad.
