New and existing Telstra mobile customers on eligible prepaid and postpaid plans will be able to access unlimited free Wi-Fi on the Telstra Air national Wi-Fi network until June 30, 2016.Existing Telstra Air members and Telstra home broadband customers who become members will also have access to quota-free Wi-Fi at Telstra Air hotspots during this period, provided they don’t exceed their home broadband allowance.
Telstra Air, which was launched in June, is available nationally via Wi-Fi hotspots at selected parks, shopping areas, cafes, beaches, transport hubs and residential areas.
“As Australians hit the beach, head to the coast and relax in our parks, we’re giving eligible customers free Wi-Fi at thousands of Telstra Air hotspots across the nation,” Telstra head of Wi-Fi Neil Louis commented.
“That means they’ll be able to kick back and relax with their favourite content at selected beaches, parks and many of the nation’s top holiday destinations, like Byron Bay, Rosebud, Surfers Paradise, Noosa and Margaret River.
“We’re tipping customers will use the data equivalent of sending more than 50 million high-quality photos to post, browse, share and stream on our Wi-Fi network over summer.”
Telstra states that almost 300,000 members have joined the network since its launch, with 10 councils partnering with the telco to rollout additional public hotspots in civic spaces.
