Wi-fi boosts ‘connectivity’
NEDLANDS locals and visitors can access free Wi-Fi at four City of Nedlands public buildings from October 3.
Mayor Max Hipkins said the City partnered with Perth-based internet provider iiNet earlier this year to “take the lead” as a technologically progressive city.
“We live in an ever changing world of technology and one where people need to and do enjoy remaining connected to the pulse of the internet via portable devices including mobile phones, tablets and laptops,” Mr Hipkins said.
iiNet chief business officer Greg Bader said the company was looking forward to improving connectivity its home city after recently building Australia’s largest open access Wi-Fi AdelaideFree.
“Free Wi-Fi is a necessity in any modern city and we’re excited that we can use our national expertise to help improve connectivity across Nedlands’ community spaces,” Mr Bader said.
Public Wi-Fi will be available from City of Nedlands Administration and Nedlands Library buildings on Stirling Highway, Mount Claremont Library on Montgomery Avenue and Nedlands Community Care on Waratah Avenue.
