Horsham Free WiFi
Free public Wi-Fi launched in Horsham
Residents and visitors in Horsham Rural City will be able to surf the Internet for free throughout the Central Business District.
Residents and visitors can access free Internet at eight access points across the city, including Firebrace Street, Roberts Place, the Bus Station on Roberts Ave, the Visitor Information Centre, the Soundshell and May Park.
This project is part of the city's digital and wireless strategy with the purpose of building a network that puts Horsham on the map and offers almost the same standard of connectivity seen in larger cities around the world. Council and local businesses have worked together to set up the free public access Wi-Fi, which builds upon existing networks to bring lasting benefits for the city and beyond.
Upon connection, users will need to agree to the terms and conditions and complete a short survey. The survey will assist council to understand why and who is using the service and the purpose of their visit to Horsham.
Users can then access useful information such as accommodation, restaurants and transportation on the landing page without data limits or connect to the Internet with data limits. The data limit is set at 100MB per day.
The Free Wi-fi service has a family-friendly filter and data limits are applied to help reduce the risk of the service being misused and or abused.
Council wishes to thank the contractors involved in the project, including local company CHS Group and Geelong based DuxTel Communication Services.
