Coun­cil up­grade to pub­lic in­ter­net ac­cess planned

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Re­gional Coun­cil has re­solved to up­grade its in­ter­net ser­vices across the re­gion al­low­ing the com­mu­nity and Coun­cil staff bet­ter ac­cess to the world­wide web.

Mayor Jennifer Whit­ney said Coun­cil would up­grade its in­ter­net ser­vices to al­low pub­lic WiFi ac­cess at the air­port and in­creased in­ter­net speeds at the re­gion’s pub­lic li­braries.

“Be­fore [the] June school hol­i­days, mem­bers of the pub­lic will be able to ac­cess WiFi at the Whit­sun­day Coast Air­port, mak­ing their trav­el­ling ex­pe­ri­ence through our air­port more en­joy­able,” she said.

“This up­grade will also vastly in­crease the in­ter­net speed at our li­braries in Cannonvale, Proser­pine, Bowen and Collinsville.”

Cr Whit­ney said the up­grade would also al­low for fu­ture pub­lic WiFi ac­cess in Coun­cil’s cus­tomer ser­vice cen­tres.

She said in­ter­net speeds for Coun­cil staff at de­pots and quar­ries through­out the re­gion would im­prove, mean­ing Coun­cil would be able to ser­vice the com­mu­nity more ef­fi­ciently.

“This net­work up­grade is part of Coun­cil cre­at­ing greater ef­fi­cien­cies across all our ser­vice de­liv­ery ar­eas,” she said.
