More free Wi-Fi locations are coming soon to Canberra, including six in Tuggeranong.
13 August 2020
Canberra will soon be better connected, with work now underway to add additional suburbs to the city’s free public Wi-Fi network (CBRfree).
The CBRfree network will cover every Canberra town centre, 16 group centres and a number of popular community locations and businesses.
The expansion will create jobs and support local businesses, particularly smaller businesses in our town centres and local shopping precincts.
The additional locations will come online by the end of June 2021.
The download limit will also be increased from 250MB to 1GB per day, per device, to allow people to browse the internet for around 12 hours, stream 200 songs or watch two hours of video content.
During COVID-19, internet access has been particularly vital. The ACT Government has provided free internet access to around 600 ACT public school students studying from home who did not already have access.
CBRfree will support a range of smart-city initiatives which will benefit the ACT community, including support for 30 public safety CCTV cameras to help make our city and suburban town centres safer.
