Public Wi-Fi for Victoria

Public Wi-Fi for Victoria - Expressions of Interests (EOIs) have been sought to deliver the first stage of the Victorian Coalition Government’s new Public Wi-Fi pilot in Melbourne, Ballarat and Bendigo.

The rapid growth in the uptake of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, cloud computing, social media, the availability of high-speed broadband, and open government data present huge opportunities in Victoria.

The Victorian Government, through its recently released ICT Strategy, is taking advantage of these capabilities for the benefit and use of Victorians.

The strategy provides high-level direction on the design and use of information and technology to deliver better government services.

It has been developed in response to three drivers: changes in citizen expectations of government services and ICT use; advances in technology; and current gaps in ICT leadership, governance and skills.

The strategy was developed in consultation with the Victorian Information and Communications Technology Advisory Committee (VICTAC) which was formed to guide government in its use of ICT.

This site contains the strategy itself, as well as related information, policies, standards and frameworks.
