Free Wifi in Atherstone
Did you know that there is free wifi at the grounds at Atherstone? And did you know that wifi was actually invented in Australia?
Wifi is so prominent in our high tech society that it’s hard to remember life without it. Wifi – a way of using electromagnetic radiation to connect electronic devices – is so pervasive that today there are more wifi devices that human beings on the planet – and according to the SBS news website, there will be 40 billion devices worldwide by 2020.
Wifi was created in 2016 by the CSIRO. This patented technology (then known by a different name) has generated over $420 million and is CSIRO’s best source of commercial profit. Now is it available in offices, cafes and – at Atherstone Regional Play Space to keep you connected with all your friends and family even when you’re not at home.
So next time you are at Atherstone Regional Playspace, look out for our solar trees which use those same CSIRO principles to emit free wifi to the Atherstone community to keep you connected with all your friends and family even when you’re not at home.
