The Northern Territory government is providing AU$1 million to increase free wifi connectivity in many areas of the territory. “To make life easier for people checking sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, you want to have access to free wifi everywhere from galleries to cafes, to malls and parks,” said Chief Minister Adam Giles. Free wifi at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station follows on from the successful roll-out at Wangi Falls (Litchfield National Park), Watarka (Kings Canyon), Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles), the Todd Mall, Anzac Oval and TIO Traeger Park. The NT government recognises that free wifi allows Tourism NT to cross-promote experiences in particular regions, supporting tourists to discover other points of interest around the Red Centre. More key tourism sites under the government’s free wifi programme will be announced in the coming months and will be spread throughout the Territory’s regions.
