Free wi-fi hotspots

23:00, Dec 21 2012

Nelsonians and visitors will be able to upload their holiday snaps and keep up with those out of the region in the next month, with free wi-fi hotspots from Telecom set up in the region.

The hotspots went live on Tuesday, as part of a nationwide trial, involving more than 100 Telecom WiFi hotpots in popular summer regions around New Zealand.

The service will be activated through existing Telecom telephone boxes and by building wi-fi access points into existing infrastructure such as local shops. There will be Telecom WiFi hotspots in the region, in areas including Havelock, Motueka, Nelson, Picton, Kaiteriteri and St Arnaud.
