Matthew Frankel, CFP The Motley Fool Published 10:12 AM EDT Jul 17, 2019 Warren Buffett is arguably the most respected investor of all time, and for good reason.

Until recently, the Arranmore Island’s remote location and topography meant that reliable internet connectivity wasn’t always available. As a result, business owners on the island faced challenges to promote it as a tourism destination, but that’s all changed. Local fisherman, and owner of Arranmore Hostel and Early’s Bar, Jerry Early explains why. “It’s the standard question every hotelier or guest house owner has to answer with almost every email and call; “do you have wifi?” Having it, or not, can be the difference between giving visitors a satisfactory experience or a truly memorable one,” says Early. It really is that simple: connectivity is now an essential part of the tourism experience.
