Launceston Testing On-Bus Wi-Fi

Brisbane wants to get it. Adelaide is testing it. Now Launceston is joining the rush to add Wi-Fi for users of its public transport system.

Jacquelyn Holt at ZDNet reports that $300,000 will be spent on a trial of adding Wi-Fi to buses for commuters in Launceston. The trial will run for 18 months, and could eventually result in similar services in other parts of the state. Given Tasmania’s somewhat patchy 3G broadband coverage, that’s a very welcome development.
