Victoria's first free wifi zone has been fully opened to the public. From now on, you can surf the Internet for free in the central areas of Queen Victoria Market and Ballarat and Bendigo.

Victorian Premier Denis Napthine said that the free wifi pilot project supported by iiNet cost a total of A$670 million. By 2015, Melbourne, Bendigo and Ballarat will have 1000 free wifi hotspots covered.

The pilot program will last for 5 years, users do not need a password when connecting, and do not need to watch sponsor advertisements. But the government does not rule out the possibility of increasing advertising in the future.

Governor Denis Napthine believes that "free wifi will help enhance the tourist experience in Victoria, attract more information technology companies and provide support to small businesses and education departments. At the same time, free wifi can also provide additional communications in emergency situations. Guaranteed."
