LPM Welcomes Launch OF Free Castries WiFi Project

The leader of the Lucian Peoples Movement (LPM), Therold Prudent, has welcomed the launch this week of a free WiFi project in the city of Castries.

It is part of the Government Islandwide Network (GINET), funded by the Taiwanese.

Currently the free Castries service can be accessed at 10 locations.

They are Government Buildings (Waterfront), Serenity Park, Derek Walcott Square, Central Market, Craft Market, Constitution Park, La Place Carenage, Pointe Seraphine, Cultural Centre and the National ICT Centre/Central Library.

“It’s a step in the right direction. They’re late, but they’re coming into it,” LPM leader, Therold Prudent said of the initiative.

He recalled that years ago he himself offered free WiFi outside of his Gros Islet office.

Prudent said the service covered one or two blocks around Marie Therese Street.

The LPM leader told St Lucia Times that the service has now been operational for years.

“If the government is going to expand on WiFi, I believe it is a good thing,” Prudent asserted.

But he said he would like to repeat what he said to the people of Gros Islet when he offered the same service from his office – that citizens should make good use of the free WiFi initiative now available in Castries and not access it for unwholesome purposes that do not contribute to self development.

“I believe it is good and when it’s good, I am going to say that it’s good,” the LPM leader declared.

Nevertheless, he made it clear that his commendation does not mean that he is happy with the performance of the Allen Chastanet government in the last two and a half years.

“It does not mean that I am happy with the vision of Allen Chastanet; but from time to time when they borrow an idea and turn it into something positive, I will agree to it,” Prudent told St Lucia Times.


  1. Borrow an idea???????????
    This is a Government. Initiatives continue under successive Administrations

  2. This is how idiots speaks “It does not mean that I am happy with the vision of Allen Chastanet; but from time to time when they borrow an idea and turn it into something positive, I will agree to it” That say what an idiot the write is. What I read from this is that if this same project which he has applauded was initiated by the UWP government he would have not applaud it.

  3. Commendation must go to the current government for bringing this initiative to fruition. The country needs men that will talk less and do more. Deeds, not words, will suffice. There are major things that need to be tackled with immediacy, namely, healthcare, national security, secondary roads, the economy to name a few. The wages of most civil servants should be increased to keep abreast with inflation. We must also not forget to commend the Taiwanese for their invaluable contributions to national development.

  4. This so called LPM leader, no wonder you have zero followers. That’s such an ignorant comment. You are not a leader period. You are a confuser so sad … You level of thinking is below average so you can forget about a political career. SMDH
