The Victorian government has launched a free Wi-Fi network for Melbourne’s CBD.
The network is part of an $11 million pilot program to roll out Wi-Fi in the state. The government in December launched free Wi-Fi networks in Bendigo and Ballarat.
The Melbourne network is available at all train stations in the city's CBD, Bourke Street Mall, Queen Victoria Market, and South Wharf Promenade at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
More hotspots are planned to be added to the Melbourne network.
The five-year project is being managed by TPG. The network has a download limit of 250 megabytes per device per day.
