Free Wi-Fi zones

by Anonymous Author

Three free Wi-Fi zones will be operating in Selwyn soon, with one of the zones already available in Darfield.

The new zones will offer free public Wi-Fi access from central facilities in Darfield, Lincoln and Tai Tapu.

The Wi-Fi zones are being provided by Selwyn District Council through the Spark network and designed to be used by both locals and visitors.

A council spokesperson said the Wi-Fi zones will allow people to connect to ultra-fast broadband with usage not being time — or data-limited.

“The zone which is already operating is based at Darfield Library and extends approximately 50 metres around the library location.

“A similar 50-metre free Wi-Fi zone will start operating outside Lincoln Library in June.”

A third free Wi-Fi zone is planned to start operating in central Tai Tapu by the end of the year, with the site yet to be selected.
