Free Wi-Fi is expected to be rolled out on more Northern Territory buses following
its high
use since installed on 15 buses early this year.

Almost 9,000 individual users have used the free Wi-Fi a total of about 55,000 times since the service was introduced in Darwin in February and Alice Springs in March.

Northern Territory Transport Minister Adam Giles says it
was worth spending $10,000 to connect each bus.

"I am looking forward to rolling-out Wi-Fi on more buses across the Darwin network," Giles says.

The service allows commuters 90 minutes or 100MB of free internet use every day.

The Darwin, Casuarina and Palmerston bus interchanges are also Wi-Fi connected.

Giles says the free Wi-Fi project has been hugely popular with travellers, especially students able to connect when going to and from classes.

"This service is encouraging people to use our extensive public transport network, saving them money and cutting the cost of living," Giles says.
