MORE Fraser Coast locations have been added to the free Wi-Fi service offered by Council.
The Fraser Coast Regional Council has started a 12-month trial of free Wi-Fi accessible by people around the Maryborough City Hall and the precinct around WetSide, SkateSide and Seafront Oval in Hervey Bay.
The free service will operate from 7am to 7pm, seven days a week with extended hours when events are held at the Maryborough City Hall and Seafront Oval.
Data will be limited to 500MB per day per person and the system will have a filtering system to block adult content and gambling.
Deputy Mayor Paul Truscott said the trial would be used to monitor demand and popularity.
“While we are providing a service for residents, it will be an added benefit for tourists,” Cr Truscott said.
“We aim to increase tourism across the Fraser Coast in the wake of COVID-19 and there is no better way to increase our promotion than by tourists sending snaps and videos of their holidays here to family and friends.
“Tourists will become ambassadors for our region as they enjoy themselves.
“It’s all part of Council’s plan to build better communities together.”
Free Wi-Fi is also available at the Hervey Bay airport and Fraser Coast libraries.
