“Under the banner of Wireless Tasmania, the Hobart Wireless Waterfront project is a real example of government/industry involvement in the installation and operation of a wireless broadband network for the benefit of the community and visitors to Hobart’s historic waterfront. The mix of traditional, industrial, cultural and creative sectors that form the commercial and institutional enterprises spread throughout the Hobart Waterfront precinct will provide a blueprint for the deployment of mixed function wireless broadband communities elsewhere in the state”.
