According to an article by CIO, free Wi-Fi is now available in the St Georges Terrace/Adelaide Terrace area, with free Wi-Fi coming to more CBD sites early next year.
In August, the City of Perth began a free Wi-Fi trial covering these areas:
- Murray Street Mall
- Forrest Place
- in addition to the City's free service at Northbridge Plaza
- with plans to add Stirling Gardens
The Council is investigating the rollout of more Wi-Fi zones in the CBD, and envisions future extensions to East Perth and West Perth.
Free Wi-Fi is reportedly available at various other Perth locations including:
- the resources quarter
- the Perth Cultural Centre
- some cafes and bars
The latest free Wi-Fi hotspots in the St Georges Terrace/Adelaide Terrace area are previously subscription-based Wi-Fi network to the general public that aCure Technology has opened.
According to the CIO article, aCure's Perth network was launched on a subscription basis in 2006.
The decision to provide free access was said to be driven by the announcement of a plan to bring free Wi-Fi to the Adelaide CBD.
The change from paid to free access was said to be possible because aCure considers the network to be "paid off".
