Outback internet service finally switched on

A high-speed internet service built by graziers in north Queensland has finally been switched on after a minor hold-up.

Unsatisfied with their internet service, the Harrington family from Olga Downs Station, about 50 kilometres north of Richmond, between Mount Isa and Townsville decided to build their own wireless link.

William Harrington, from Olga Downs, said it was exciting to have the service up and running after some minor hold-ups.

"We're now finally able to offer internet connectivity to the people in Richmond and the businesses in Richmond that's better than most towns in Australia," Mr Harrington said.

He said telecommunication problems were an ongoing issue for people living in the bush.

"For us to be able to get [internet] on our station we had to build a 50 kilometre wireless link and that was a totally separate process that took six months," he said.

"Most cattle stations are million-dollar-enterprises now and they're trying to run them with poor internet."

web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
Excellent blog!

First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior
to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
Cheers!

have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice
