We want Wi-Fi…bring us Wi-Fi…We love Wi-Fi,’’ yelled a group of mock protestors as free wi-fi was launched in Lower Hutt’s central business district today. Mayor Ray Wallace said wi-fi will put some zing into the CBD, as he flicked a switch to officially declare the availability of free Wi-Fi.
The rowdy group walking through the streets complete with banners demanding Wi-Fi was part of an awareness campaign by Hutt City Council.
‘’We are proud to partner with Smartlinx3 bringing another Technology Valley® initiative to the CBD,’’ says Mayor Ray Wallace.
‘’Everyone is on the move with mobile devices. People will be able to connect and undertake business outside their office.’’
In keeping with the theme of technology, one lucky browser will have the chance to win an iPad 2. Competition details will be on the sidewalks within the Lower Hutt Central business district Wi-Fi zones.
