Fraser Coast Regional Council has expanded its free 12-month trial Wi-Fi service to Maryborough Town Hall, the youth precinct centred around WetSide, SkateSide, and the Seafront Oval.
The free service will operate from 7am to 7pm, seven days a week with extended hours when events are on at the Seafront Oval or in the Maryborough CBD.
Data will be limited to 500MB per day per person and the system will have basic filtering to block adult content, and gambling.
Fraser Coast Deputy MayorPaul Truscott said Council implemented the trial to monitor demand and its popularity.
“While we are providing a service for residents, it will be an added benefit for tourists,” Mayor Truscot said.
“We aim to increase tourism across the Fraser Coast in the wake of COVID-19 and there is no better way to increase our promotion than by tourists sending snaps and videos of their holidays here to family and friends.
“Tourists will become ambassadors for our region as they enjoy themselves.
“It’s all part of Council’s plan to build better communities together.”
Free Wi-Fi is also available at Hervey Bay airport and Fraser Coast libraries.
