Free WiFi helps promote NZ visitor experience

Free WiFi helps promote NZ visitor experience

Telecom’s trial of free WiFi at holiday hotspots around New Zealand is being welcomed by the Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA).

Telecom is installing more than 120 free WiFi hotspots at 43 popular holiday locations over summer to help people stay connected via their smartphones, tablets, laptops and other mobile devices.

“We fully support this Telecom trial because it will help improve the holiday experiences of both New Zealanders and our international visitors,” TIA Chief Executive Martin Snedden says.

“More and more travellers are taking their mobile devices on holiday with them, to stay in touch with family and friends, and share their holiday experiences. Personal stories about great travel experiences are incredibly important in marketing New Zealand as a visitor destination and free WiFi will encourage more people to share their holiday activities immediately.”

All travellers need to sign up for this service is a New Zealand mobile number that can receive TXT messages.
