CREATING JOBS USING BROADBAND !


Eleutian Technology ( Ten Sleep / Wyoming / USA  ) teaches English to 15,000 Korean students.

CEO Kent Holiday says,

“ It’s a $ 100 billion market between Korea, Japan and China and so we wanted to be the leader and wanted to have millions of users “.

This 2 year old person-to-person video service , using broadband / Skype, provides remote / online employment to some 300 teachers, and has become one of the fastest growing business in Wyoming.

Korean students don’t care that the town of Ten Sleep boasts a population of 350 , nor whether those teachers are sitting in a call-center in an adjoining country !
