Citylink's Brian Phillips, the Mayor, and Kiwibank's Nicky Ashton test the Wi-Fi in Midland Park
This new service, which kicked off last Thursday, is a partnership between Wellington City Council and CityLink.
Mayor Celia Wade-Brown says she has seen people logging on along Lambton Quay, outside Cuba Street cafes, and along the waterfront.
"It's a great sight to see in this digital age and it fits perfectly with our Wellington 2040 vision as a smart, green city," says Mayor Wade-Brown.
"Considering how many thousands of people are visiting the Capital over the next few weeks, we're delighted they can now check in with news from home for free - and tell their friends and family about the great time they're having in Wellington."
