Two million Telstra Wi-Fi™ hotspots expected within five years
Our vision is to help you connect more often. We’re creating Australia's largest Wi-Fi network as part of a $100 million-plus strategy to increase connectivity in the places Australians live, work and visit, such as cafes, shops, sports grounds and transport hubs. The network is scheduled to launch from early 2015.
Greater Wi-Fi coverage
Our aim is to offer Australians – irrespective of whether they are Telstra customers or not – access to two million Wi-Fi hotspots across the nation within five years. And in an effort to ensure that our customers are truly connected, our new network will also reach overseas, allowing you to connect at more than 12 million international hotspots as part of an exclusive deal with global Wi-Fi provider Fon.
Take your Home Broadband Allowance with you
Our Home Broadband customers will be able to use their broadband allowance away from their homes. We’ll be offering new gateways that’ll allow you to securely share a portion of your bandwidth with Telstra Wi-Fi customers in exchange for accessing your Home Broadband allowance at Telstra Wi-Fi hotspots across the nation. If you have a compatible gateway and join the Wi-Fi community, you’ll be able to use your Home Broadband allowance at domestic Telstra Wi-Fi hotspots, as well as connect at more than 12 million hotspots overseas.
Why Australians stand to benefit
We are planning to bring Wi-Fi internet to community areas and social precincts, as well as shopping strips, business centres and transport hubs. We’ll also work with small business, enterprise and government to bring Telstra Wi-Fi to cafes, shops, waiting rooms, parks, stadiums and public buildings. Non Telstra customers and Telstra customers who are not part of the Wi-Fi community will be able to buy passes to Fon-enabled Telstra Wi-Fi hotspots.
