Questions & Answers About this Opportunity

Do the accommodations have a reliable wifi or LAN connection?
Susan, Jan 18th, 2017
Hi Susan, This depends on which centre you are placed at. Most centres have internet connection but it might not be stable. In other centres that are located in rural areas, there is no internet connection at all.
