Free Wi-fi provider announced
Creating a leading digital city. That’s the ultimate goal of the ACT Government’s Digital Canberra Action Plan , unveiled by Chief Minister Katy Gallagher MLA earlier this year.
One of the major priorities within the action plan is the implementation of free Wi-Fi in Canberra, commencing in Civic and later rolling out to other town centres and commercial precincts. Last week, the Chief Minister took the next step in achieving this goal, announcing iiNet as the successful supplier to provide the Wi-fi which will be available in Civic from October this year.
iiNet has delivered a free public network in Adelaide that is used by 200,000 people each month and has up to 500 people connected during peak periods.
Once available, Canberrans will be able to download up to 100 megabytes per day of data. When complete, the Territory’s network will be the largest free outdoor public network in Australia.
