AlburyCity expands its free public wi-fi network

07 October 2014

AlburyCity has expanded its free public wi-fi network to include the its Kiewa Street Offices, the Lauren Jackson Sports Centre and the Mirambeena Community Centre.  Residents can now login for free at eight different Council buildings.

The move means that a number of Albury Council's staffed sites now offer free public wi-fi and residents can stay connected when they are at a council building.

"Access to free public Internet is one of the key criteria by which any city is measured," said Albury Mayor Kevin Mack. "It's good to know that in a world that is becoming increasingly digitised Albury is punching above its weight in keeping residents connected."

"These days there is an expectation that a person can connect to the Internet wherever they go. We have a plan to meet that expectation in our public facilities."

"One of the key objectives of Albury 2030 is to ensure our residents are well connected, that our economy is growing. Internet access is the platform for us to achieve that. This is another step towards helping our community embrace the digital world."

The roll-out continues Council's Digital Economy Strategy implementation, with one of the key recommendations of the plan being that free wi-fi be made available at Council facilities. Albury residents can connect to AlburyCity's free wi-fi service at the following locations during each site's specific business hours:

  • Kiewa Street Offices
  • Albury Airport
  • Lauren Jackson Sports Centre
  • Albury Entertainment Centre
  • LibraryMuseum
  • Lavington Library
  • Albury Visitor Information Centre
  • Mirrambeena Community Centre
