Facebook partners with Rutherford County Schools

In the last year, Facebook partnered with Rutherford County Schools and PANGAEA Internet to launch a free Wi-Fi network in the towns of Forest City and Rutherfordton. The goal of the network is to serve Rutherford County schoolchildren who don’t have access to the Internet in their homes, and has been a great success in its first year. The network now serves more than 5,000 local residents per month.
