Telstra Air will be free for everybody on 20 June
Celebrate World Wi-Fi Day with free Telstra Air Wi-Fi access all across the nation.
Public Wi-Fi is almost expected these days, although if you're trying to manage your mobile broadband spend, finding those precious spots where the Wi-Fi actually works can be a delicate balancing act.
Telstra has long used its Telstra Air service as a point of differentiation for its mobile and broadband customers. It provides a national Wi-Fi network that runs through Telstra stores, payphones, public assembly locations and the modems of opted-in Telstra broadband customers. It's typically only available to those customers at no charge and a one-day free pass would cost you $10.
However, Telstra has announced that on 20 June 2017 it will be flicking over the "free" switch for all Australians in order to celebrate both World Wi-Fi Day and the installation of its millionth Telstra Air Wi-Fi spot.
If you're curious, that spot is apparently in Mildura, but you don't have to travel to Victoria to get in on the free Wi-Fi action. The most easily-accessible hotspots are the Telstra payphones with the distinctive pink tops, but the hotspots do require you to log in to access the Wi-Fi.
