Just when I thought I would be on holidays without computers for 5 weeks, I realised that there is a deadline right in the middle of my holidays-and I will be at Kimberley. I will need to get internet access to heve the work done. Would there be any convenient public internet access in or around Kimberley?

The smaller Telecentres may have limited days/hours that they are open.

Well Footloose - you could always move out there, apply for funding and run a Telecentre Access Point for all the Exploroz-ers who do the CSR

Motherhen, I dunno. I give you all these great business ideas and then you suggest that I do it. I mean, can you imagine how few people would do the CSR if they knew that I was at well33 ? The local tourism industry would probably tar and feather me.

Hi motherhen,
Looking thru the archives I noted your information on Telecentres in WA. I also would like to have the same information for Kakadu areas,Alice Springs.
Do you have information on how to locate public internet access in those areas.
you can email me direct on jomar@jc.com.au,as I'm not sure I can find this post in archives again...I cannot see a post number via this window
Cheers
Joe

Hi Joe - a search around found references to Telecentres in SA, and public internet access points in Vic. There must be some available, as i found reference to a 2000 project to put internet access into Councils in NT. You could try contacting local Councils in the areas you plan to visit and ask if they have or know who has public internet access in their town. Or just travel in WA where we look after our visitors well.

Hi Figtree,

All the major towns, such as Halls Creek, Fitzroy Crossing, Derby and Kununurra have these falicities.

Well 33 is not connected yet, but I'm sure it's a Telstra priority (won't be long until Durba is connected). Just kidding

Regards

Kim.

Not only that but Broome and Derby have Broadband and Broome has many Internet Cafes along with the telecentre.
Also all of the Kimberley towns have internet via CDMA where you can connect a laptop via your cdma phone to a high speed network. Not sure of exact details but if you have a laptop it means you can get internet access wherever you get CDMA access.

BTW Last week a CDMA tower was commissioned at One Arm Point and Cape leveque. You can now get CDMA signal from just before Djarindjin/Lombadina all the way to the top.
So who knows a internet cafe at well 33 might be next...
