Mexican cartel forces locals to pay for makeshift Wi-Fi under threat of death

“A cartel in the central Mexican state of Michoacan set up its own makeshift internet antennas and told locals they had to pay to use its Wi-Fi service or they would be killed, state prosecutors said Wednesday.

Dubbed “narco-antennas” by local media, the cartel’s system involved internet antennas set up in various towns built with stolen equipment.”
