Optus Offering Free Wi-Fi At Australian Open

We don’t have enough free public Wi-Fi in Australia, so I’m all for this: Optus will be offering a free Wi-Fi service on the grounds at the Australian Open, which kicks off in Melbourne on January 16.

The Wi-Fi service will be available to everyone, but Optus will be offering a fillip for its existing customers: free streaming of Seven’s TV coverage to Optus 3G mobiles, using either dedicated iPhone and Android apps or the Optus Zoo portal. Nice if you’re a tennis nut. (Optus had a similar arrangement last year.)
