FREE wireless internet hotspots are now available in more places around Frankston.
Free Wi-Fi has been expanded at the Carrum Downs Library, Frankston Library and forecourt, Seaford Library and Seaford Community Centre, Frankston Youth Resource Centre, Frankston Visitor Information Centre, Mahogany Rise Child and Family Centre, Frankston Civic Centre, Frankston Arts Centre, Frankton North Community Centre, Frankton South Community Centre, Ebdale Community Centre, and the Langwarrin Customer Service building.
Frankston City Libraries manager, Tammy Beauchamp, said “our members told us in our recent library survey how much they value the Wi-Fi at our library branches. In the past two months, the library Wi-Fi has been accessed more than 3200 hours by members across our branches and with 13 per cent of the Frankston City community not having access to the internet at home, the library is vital to fill this gap.”
“Our library members have told us that the Wi-Fi has enabled them to set up businesses, study, connect with family members overseas and even apply for permanent residency. Council’s Wi-Fi upgrade across the library branches has provided our more than 55,000 members fast and reliable Wi-Fi to access vital services including job applications, internet banking, emails and enhances their safe and quiet space away from home,” she said.
Frankston Council spent $230,000 to expand its free Wi-Fi network.
