Waitaki free public wifi

The Waitaki District Council provides free public Wi-Fi in areas of Hampden, Palmerston, Omarama, Otematata and Oamaru. The project was passed by council in 2020, with councillors acknowledging that better connectivity would be a boon for both locals in need of good connectivity and visitors to the district wanting to discover all that Waitaki has to offer.

Simply connect your device to the “Waitaki WiFi” hot spot, and you’re away.
