Telstra Plans to Spend AU$100 million


On May 20, 2014, Telstra, Australia’s leading fixed and mobile network operator announced that it will invest more than AU$100 million to create “one of the world’s largest Wi-Fi networks” for use by its home broadband subscribers and the general public. Telstra will deploy more than 8,000 IEEE802.11ac Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide in public venues, transport hubs, community areas, and small businesses. The company will recruit its fixed-line subscribers to opt-in and share their Wi-Fi access via a new Telstra Gateway modem with other Telstra Wi-Fi customers, and in return they will be able to access their own home broadband allowance at Telstra hotspots across the nation. Telstra is hoping that within 5 years, 2 million of its customers will opt-in to the Wi-Fi network.
