Free Wi-Fi ex­panded into CBD


FREE Wi-Fi will be of­fered through­out the Bris­bane CBD and other in­ner-city lo­ca­tions from early next year.

Un­der the $1.1 mil­lion deal be­tween the Bris­bane City Coun­cil and Tel­stra to be an­nounced to­day, ex­ist­ing Wi-Fi spots will be mas­sively ex­panded, as well as adding the James St precinct to the mix.

While ar­eas such as the Queen Street Mall are al­ready cov­ered by Wi-Fi, this will be ex­panded to in­clude the Botanic Gar­dens to Roma Street Sta­tion and City Reach Board­walk to Queens Wharf.

The Wi-Fi hotspot at South Bank will also be ex­panded.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said that last year more than 400,000 users logged on to the ex­ist­ing city Wi-Fi net­work for an av­er­age of 20 min­utes each.

For­ti­tude Val­ley Mall, King Ge­orge Square and New Farm Park are among 20 lo­ca­tions that al­ready have the ser­vice.
