Free public Wifi across Melbourne’s CBD
Did you just say FREE WIFI?
Yup, that is correct and this is all thanks to the installation of the VicFreeWiFi service.
The service is available at all Melbourne CBD train stations, Bourke St Mall, Queen Victoria Market, and the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, with more locations to be available by the end of 2016. The free Wi-Fi network is also available in two key regional Victorian cities: Ballarat and Bendigo.
Managed and maintained by telecommunications company TPG, each user can use up to 250MB data per device, per day. Better yet, no personal logins are required and bye bye to those annoying pop-up advertisements.
VicFreeWiFi will also provide information and data that can help improve safety, security, and efficiency that will have wide-reaching economic impacts for the state of Victoria.
To login to VicFreeWiFi, simply:
- Look up available wi-fi networks on your phone, tablet or laptop
- Select “VicFreeWiFi” and accept the Terms and conditions
- Enjoy up to 250MB of free data per day
