The Margaret River Chamber of Commerce, with the support of the Margaret River Hotel and Computer West, is excited to announce the launch of its first free public Wi-Fi hotspot, built with leading world-class Wi-Fi technology.

The local community and visitors are now invited to take the opportunity to utilise free public Wi-Fi located in the vicinity of the Margaret River Hotel.

The Wi-Fi hotspot installed at the front of the iconic hotel has a network that reaches 40-50m and is fast, family-friendly and very secure.

The Margaret River Hotel is located in the heart of the main street of Margaret River and being central, is ideal for the first installation of the MRCCI Wi-Fi network.

Peter Griffyn, President for the MRCCI explains that “having the first Wi-Fi access point in the middle of town will allow the Chamber to share Monthly Foot Traffic Reports for digital marketing purposes, informing the business community of how many unique people (with Wi-Fi enabled devices) are moving through town, and when people connect to the Wi-Fi, what social networks and online services are being utilised the most.”

The Margaret River Hotel is showing leadership amongst the Margaret River Region Business Community by supporting innovation for the region.

Margaret River Hotel’s manager Steven Hughes is enthusiastic to be a part of the Margaret River Chamber of Commerce’s project.

“We are excited to be a part of such a positive community project, which is set to benefit not only the Margaret River town, but eventually the entire region, when the end-to-end main street Wi-Fi Network is in place,” said Mr Hughes.

As this is the first stage of implementation for the free public Wi-Fi project, the rollout of the Wi-Fi Network to connect the entire main street is moving ahead.

To date, the free public Wi-Fi access has only been made possible by the MRCCI Members renewing their commitment to the Chamber and to innovation for their town and region.

The Wi-Fi Network has also given MRCCI members the opportunity to advertise on the Wi-Fi network login page.

Regional business members can advertise their messages and business opportunities to Wi-Fi users, through the Wi-Fi advertising platform.

“We further encourage the Margaret River Region business community to get behind such a valuable project for the region and become a Chamber member,” says Mr Griffyn.
