Auckland Council’s five-year contract to provide free Wi-Fi in selected public spaces will end from November 6.
The five-year contract, with service provider Tomizone, was initially set up for the 2011 Rugby World Cup, with users able to access up to 1GB of free Wi-Fi per day.
“The council will continue to assess its options for providing a similar Wi-Fi service in the future,” the Director of ICT, Mark Denvir, says.
“We continue to offer free 1GB of Wi-Fi to visitors of all 55 of Auckland’s libraries, as well as additional locations such as the Auckland Art Gallery and selected community, leisure and event venues.”
