ACT Chief Minister and Minister for Health Katy Gallagher MLA announced that free public internet access is now available at the Canberra Hospital campus and at Belconnen, Gungahlin and Tuggeranong Community Health Centres.

“Public wireless internet access (Wi-Fi) was switched on across the ACT Health Wi-Fi network, following a successful trial of the service at the Canberra Hospital campus,” the Chief Minister said.

“This service links with the Digital Canberra strategy that is helping to stimulate the digital economy across Canberra. Public Wi-Fi is an important step in establishing Canberra as a digital city and will encourage knowledge-based and ICT industries that will help diversify the ACT economy.”

“This is a free service to the public and will enable healthcare consumers and those visiting these locations to use their own Wi-Fi enabled devices to browse the internet and keep up to date with their e-mails.

“Service levels are designed primarily for browsing the internet and accessing e-mails. All internet access will be filtered for appropriateness and is capped at up to 2 megabytes per second, per device,” the Chief Minister said.

“I’m sure this service will improve the experience of consumers, carers and other visitors to these health care facilities, especially if 3G is not enabled on their device. It is all part of delivering the best possible healthcare services experience and enriching public spaces across our health facilities,” the Chief Minister concluded.
