iiNet today announced it has been selected by the Victorian Government to build Australia’s largest free public wireless network, for Melbourne, Ballarat and Bendigo.
Dubbed VicGovFree, the $6.7 million network will contain more than 1000 wireless access points, providing free WiFi coverage across the central business districts of the three cities.
Today’s announcement strengthens iiNet’s reputation as Australia’s leading provider of public access WiFi networks, which includes major wireless deployments in Canberra and Adelaide.
iiNet Chief Business Officer Greg Bader said iiNet was proud to be part of this major project. “The VicGovFree network will be the largest WiFi deployment in Australia and one of the largest in the world,” he said.
iiNet today reveals that it has doubled capacity for its state-of-the-art iiNet Cable network, which offers NBN-level Internet speeds to about 50,000 premises in Geelong.
Doubling the capacity of its iiNet Cable network allows iiNet to supply unmet demand for high-speed Internet access from Geelong’s existing businesses and homes. At present, the NBN is only available at new real estate developments in Geelong.
iiNet Chief Technology Officer Mark Dioguardi said the iiNet Cable network can deliver Internet speeds as fast as 100 megabits per second (Mbps). “The upgrade lets us supply more customers while maintaining a high quality service,” he said.
Entries for iiNet's 21st birthday competition to give tech lovers an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at its operations close this Friday.
The iiNet Experience competition offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step behind the curtain at one of Australia’s leading tech companies.
