Public Free Wifi
Napier City Council is pleased to offer free public WiFi (wireless internet connection) at a growing number of areas in the Napier CBD.
Free WiFi points include:
- Clive Square
- Marine Parade foreshore (from Ocean Spa through to the Sunken Gardens)
- Napier Library
- Maraenui shops (trial)
- Soon to be at Taradale Library
The Free public WiFi service was launched in Napier in 2010 by local telecommunications company Revolutionz. Council contributed to the implementation costs and provided access to Council assets, such as streetlights, to enable the network.
Since then we have partnered with locally based company WASP NZ Ltd for a project focusing on improving access to visitor information and Council services, enhancing users’ experiences.
Free WiFi became available at Napier Library in 2015 after its refurbishment. Before then there were 400 WiFi connections, or hits a month. They now number in the thousands.
The project will continue to evolve, with other spots throughout the city being investigated for suitability for free WiFi.
