Wi-Fi fans take to the Lower Hutt streets


Mayor Ray Wallace flicking the switch

HUTT CITY COUNCIL NEWS RELEASE

24 JUNE 2013


Wi-Fi fans take to the Lower Hutt streets

‘’We want Wi-Fi…bring us Wi-Fi…We love Wi-Fi,’’ yelled a group of mock protestors as Lower Hutt’s central business district came alive today for the launch of free Wi-Fi.

Mayor Ray Wallace says Wi-Fi will put some zing into the CBD as he flicked a switch to officially declare the availability of free Wi-Fi.

The rowdy group walking through the streets complete with banners demanding Wi-Fi was part of an awareness campaign by Hutt City Council.

‘’We are proud to partner with Smartlinx3 bringing another Technology Valley® initiative to the CBD,’’ says Mayor Ray Wallace.

‘’Everyone is on the move with mobile devices. People will be able to connect and undertake business outside their office.’’

In keeping with the theme of technology, one lucky browser will have the chance to win an iPad 2. Competition details will be on the sidewalks within the Lower Hutt Central business district Wi-Fi zones.

Wi-Fi is now available in High Street, from Waterloo to Laings Roads, Margaret Street, Bunny Street, Queens Drive and Dowse Square.

Werewolf: John Pilger, And Making War On China

In July, the New Zealand Defence Force is scheduled to join the latest round of Talisman Sabre, a huge training exercise that Australia carries out biennially in conjunction with all four arms of the US military.

Last time around in 2015, New Zealand contributed 650 personnel, 45 vehicles and two of our $NZ771 million dollar fleet of NH90 helicopters to this regional war game.

What’s weird is that Talisman Sabre is actually a rehearsal for an assault on China and its ability to defend itself. More>>
