Coun­cil launches free wi-fi

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua’s free wi-fi ser­vice will be launched with love this Thurs­day, Valen­tines Day.

Love god Cupid will join mayor Nick Leggett at the Porirua i-SITE from noon to 2pm, hand­ing out choco­lates and roses and per­haps even help­ing peo­ple con­nect ro­man­ti­cally over the wire­less net­work.

The wi-fi net­work will piggy- back on Porirua City Coun­cil’s ex­ist­ing wire­less net­works for staff at min­i­mal cost, Mr Leggett says.

It will pro­vide web ac­cess for the gen­eral pub­lic to wire­less de­vices such as smart­phones, tablets and lap­tops, and will be re­stricted to a limit of 100MB of data each de­vice, a day.

The net­work will be made avail­able across the Porirua CBD, be­gin­ning with ac­cess from Pataka and Te Rau­paraha Arena to the coun­cil build­ing, and in­clud­ing parts of Ha­gley St, Nor­rie St and Cob­ham Ct.
