Remote Tasmanian tourist site keeps visitors connected with Activ8me Public WiFi
The Communications Challenge
Located over 100 kilometres south of Hobart, the tourist site has no network coverage. Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service recognised that, by enhancing its facilities with public WiFi, it could provide a superior customer experience to those looking to share their travel experiences online and promote the site to a wider audience.
In late 2016, Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service contacted satellite broadband experts, Activ8me, for the solution.
The Activ8me Solution
however it was also important that visitors get internet access at the caves, which are located approximately a 20-minute drive from the visitor centre.
Due to the distance and terrain between the two sites, the most cost-effective solution was to install two hotspots – one at each site, with a fully managed Pay As You Go service.
The service boasts over 98 per cent uptime, even in adverse climactic conditions. Overall the solution provided reliability, flexibility and scalability for the growing number of visitors.
“People are using their mobile devices to share their experiences on social media as they explore spectacular subterranean formations, relax in the thermal springs pool, or tuck into a barbecue in the lush surroundings. Not only is it the best type of promotion for Hastings Caves, it also delivers the customer experience tourists have come to expect from destinations.”
– Beth Russell, Hastings Cave Business Manager.
