The Latvian state agency for culture and information systems, Kultaras lnformacijas Sistemas, is using Motorola's Point-To-Point (PTP) and Point-To-Multipoint (PMP) fixed wireless broadband technology to provide public internet access to outlying towns and villages across the country. This broad-scale initiative forms part of a national library communication network developed and co-financed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Latvian Ministry of Culture in conjunction with local municipalities. The aim is to provide computers and internet access at every library across the country which involves 26 counties, 56 cities and over 500 local authorities.
