Free Wi-Fi

Overview

Waverley Council understands the growing demand and importance of technology for both our residents and visitors. From our initial launch at Bondi Beach, which was the first Australian beach to offer a free Wi-Fi service, we have now over 85,000 registered Wi-Fi users.

Since then we have installed free public Wi-Fi at Waverley Library, Waverley Park and Tamarama Beach with further expansion scheduled to occur at Bondi Beach and Bronte in time for Summer. Bondi Junction (Spring Street and Oxford Street Mall) will also come in early 2017.

The new public Wi-Fi service will have 90 Wi-Fi access points and will use approximately 27,000kw of energy per year. As such, Waverley Council will offset this increase in energy use through the newly installed Solar Panels on Council buildings. Based on our predicted energy usage, new solar arrays will offset 6 times the amount of energy that Waverley Wi-Fi will utilise. Our aim is to have efficient public Wi-Fi throughout Waverley and our iconic beaches.
