What’s World Wi-Fi Day?

World Wi-Fi Day is an international event championed by the Wireless Broadband Alliance . The purpose is to recognise and celebrate the significant role Wi-Fi plays in connecting cities and communities around the world.

What’s the offer?

The event takes place internationally on Monday 20th June.

To celebrate World Wi-Fi Day, Telstra and our partner Fon are offering free Wi-Fi access to Australians over four days: Friday 17th June to Monday 20th June, 2016.

Anyone can participate, all you need is a Wi-Fi enabled device and to follow the steps below.

Accessing Telstra Free Wi-Fi

Step 1: When you’re in range of a participating Telstra public hotspot, in the list of available networks on your mobile device, search and connect to: Telstra Free Wi-Fi

Step 2: A pop-up browser should automatically open; if it doesn’t:
Open an internet browser on your device (Safari, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer etc)

This will trigger the portal to open

Step 3: Click Connect to accept the offer terms and conditions to access 30 minutes of Free Wi-Fi.

Step 4: You will see a success screen and can now access free Wi-Fi at your current hotspot

After each 30 minute session, your free Wi-Fi session will time out and you will see a browser pop up. On this screen you can reconnect for another 30 minutes by clicking connect and accepting the offer terms and conditions on screen.

Note: If you want to use Wi-Fi at another Telstra Free Wi-Fi hotspot, you will need to complete this process again

Can I reconnect after using 30 minutes of Free Wi-Fi at Telstra Free Wi-Fi hotspots?

Yes. You can reconnect for successive 30 minute sessions by clicking “Connect” on screen and therefore accepting the terms and conditions.
