Public WiFi for Portia Gold Mine
The Communications Challenge
Until recently, their employees relied on intermittent Telstra mobile coverage which was only accessible in certain areas.
The Activ8me Solution
The public WiFi service currently provides the community of 80 Portia employees with up to 450GB of data per month, funded by mine operator Consolidated Mining & Civil.
Access to reliable internet coverage connects Portia Mine staff to home and family as well as essential services such as government agencies, health professionals and education institutions.
“Providing access to reliable WiFi has proved a powerful tool in improving the happiness and wellbeing of our employees. Social media in particular keeps those isolated by distance connected to their families, friends and the world. Employees these days view the internet as a basic condition of work and the improvements recently on site reflect that with an increased ease of recruitment and staff retention. This ultimately delivers our business benefits, and for us the long-term return on investment is substantial.”
