Today I am pleased to launch the first hotspot for free Wi-Fi at Bridport.
This is the first of 47 locations across Tasmania which will benefit from free WiFi, as part of the Tasmanian Governments $500,000 commitment to boost the states connectivity.
Free Wi-Fi gives tourists the opportunity to share their experience of Tasmania online and on social media in real time, sending images of Tasmanian destinations around the world.
It also means that local businesses can promote themselves online to potential customers who are visiting the region at the time and may be looking for things to do or somewhere to eat, shop or stay.
Encouraging Tasmanian businesses to capitalise on the digital economy is a key part of the Government’s information technology strategy.
Telstra has been contracted to deliver free Wi-Fi at locations that are frequently visited by tourists and determined in consultation with regional tourism organisations.
The network will include more than 150 access points at 47 sites across 26 locations including Freycinet, Cradle Mountain, Salamanca Place and Port Arthur and regional locations such as Campbell Town, Sheffield, Zeehan, Latrobe, Geeveston, and Cygnet.
As part of the service, the public will be able to access 30 minutes of Wi-Fi services free for each device at each network location, each day.
All initial hotspots are located at Telstra payphones, but other hotspot locations will also include a mix of indoor and outdoor deployments as appropriate for the location.
