Mexico: Beepers, School Computers, Businesses Hit by Failed Mexican Satellite : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

MEXICO CITY (AP) - A $250 million satellite
seems to have died in space, cutting service
to major companies, beepers and thousands of
rural school children who depend on televised

. . .

The failure stripped television service from
12,000 mostly rural secondary schools across
Mexico that depend on satellite signals for
some or all of their teaching, according to
Alfredo Cortina, spokesman for the federal
Public Education Secretariat.
