Wi Fi Move


“Selected transport hubs” around Central Auckland will see cheap Wi-fi under a new Auckland Council partnership with Tomizone in time for the Rugby World Cup.

Thed Council has not spelt it out but one presumes its Newmarket and Britomart.

A Council statement says the wi-fi will be cheaper than “benchmarked market rates”, with free access provided to a number of websites offering information about Auckland public services, RWC activities, tourism and transport services.

The Wi-Fi zone will expand into areas such as Kingsland, the entire length of Queen Street, Britomart and Queens Wharf, lower Parnell, northern Ponsonby Road, Mt Eden Village, Onehunga, key rugby training areas and selected transport hubs around Auckland.

The network will remain in place following Rugby World Cup and continue to expand to other parts of Auckland with re-investment of profits from the service.

 It’s a start. We still need to get real about wi-fi on public transport itself.
