Central Coast Council in partnership with the Central Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCCI) offer a free Wi-Fi service in the CBDs of Penguin and Ulverstone.
The areas covered are Main Road in Penguin along the foreshore strip, and Reibey Street in Ulverstone from the Wharf to the Clock. The Council provides the infrastructure and the CCCCI manage the website and business aspect including advertising.
The free Wi-Fi is available between the hours of 6:00am and 10:00pm and individual users are limited to one hour on followed by a one hour break, effectively being one hour in every two hours.
The amount of link capacity is also limited in order to make it unusable for large downloads like movies. The usage is built around email, Facebook and web browsing.
