You can now connect your smartphone, laptop or ipad to free WiFi when you’re at the Carindale Recreation Reserve.

Brisbane City Council is now offering free wireless hotspot areas in 22 parks and public spaces across Brisbane at a maximum download speed of up to 512kbps.

I’ve been looking forward to the BCC WiFi rollout in the area and am keen to try it out in the next few days. The Carindale Recreation Reserve is a popular place for activities such as pilates, kids parties, BBQs and picnics.

Another nearby BCC WiFi hotspot just launched is in Glindemann Park at Holland Park.

These BCC WiFi hotspots provide free access at a maximum download speed of up to 512kbps. The council says these hotspot areas are to be used in a fair and community-minded manner. The council may choose to limit downloads and connection times and use content filtering systems.

You can read the BCC terms and conditions here.

If you’ve started using it let us know in the comments section below.

  1. Great concept, but unable to login with either a laptop or iPad. Tried 1300 tech support line but nobody answers. Another great idea with really poor follow through.
