Free WiFi in the City Centre

SITTING down to eat a meal or have a cup of coffee in Coffs Harbour's city centre can now be enjoyed with a trip along the internet highway.

Laptop or smartphone users will be able to enjoy free WiFi connection in the city square and nearby establishments thanks to an initiative by Coffs Harbour City Council.

Manager of telecommunications and new technology at Coffs Harbour City Council, Andrew Sales, said it's hoped the connection will help to attract more people to the city centre.

Being able to use Skype or other social media to interact with friends and family is a benefit for not only tourists to the area but also businesses that may attract exta customers thanks to the new WiFi.

Council will monitor the usage of the WiFi ensuring that it isn't misused by those in the city square or outside the Palms Centre or Coffs Central as it's to become known.

If misuse is detected a new policy may be created but for now it's all systems go for free WiFi.
