Free Wi-Fi switched on at Alice Springs Telegraph Station

Free internet access is now available at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station, allowing people to instantly upload photos to a world-wide audience on social media.

The Northern Territory Government is providing $1 million for increased access to free Wi-Fi connectivity in many areas of the Territory.

Free Wi-Fi at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station follows on from the successful roll-out at Wangi Falls (Litchfield National Park), Watarrka (Kings Canyon), Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles), the Todd Mall, Anzac Oval and TIO Traeger Park.

The installation of free Wi-Fi at tourism locations around the Territory is a new initiative by the NT Government that will help develop the north and build a $2.2 million visitor economy by 2020.

More key tourism sites under the Government's $1 million free Wi-Fi program will be announced in the coming months and will be spread throughout the Territory's regions.
