Wi-Fi and mobile initiative a win for tourism

09 /04/ 2014 Comments are Closed

The Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) has welcomed the State Government’s announcement that it will fix mobile blackspots and provide free Wi-Fi on V/Line trains travelling between Melbourne and Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Seymour and Traralgon.

Chief Executive Dianne Smith says “This initiative will enhance the visitor experience of Melburnians together with  interstate  and  international visitors when they travel by train to enjoy the many attractions of these fantastic regional cities”.

“VTIC has consistently called for the introduction of free Wi-Fi on V/Line trains so it is very pleasing that there has now been this commitment made by the State Government to deliver this to support regional tourism operators and related businesses.

“We encourage the State Government to consider further rolling out of  Wi-Fi services across the V/Line network.”
