Australia’s largest free Wi-Fi service

Melbourne got the country’s largest and fastest free Wi-Fi network, branded as “”VicFreeWiFi”. Similarly Adelaide, Perth and the Sydney Suburb is already having CBD-wide Wi-Fi.

This service will cover the train stations, Bourke St Mall, Queen Victoria Market etc. Melbourne’s program isn’t quite as generous, or as fast. Network speeds are a minimum of 2 megabits per second, with pre-launch tests delivering peak speeds of almost 90 megabits per second. There’s also a 250MB daily limit per device, which means you won’t be able to get too far with your downloads.

One of the main goal is to create 2 million new jobs across the union as part of the continued effort to keep up this new system. The plan, which currently has a budget of €120 million ($134 million) to fund installation costs and equipment, will start providing EU towns considered the “main centers of public life” with access by themselves 2020, eventually stretching to rural areas with patchy Internet access or communities lacking the funds to install Wi-Fi hotspots.
