A key component of the research is an online survey of Australian local government authority representatives. This survey will identify and examine in some detail, past, present and anticipated local Public WiFi initiatives delivered by council, and to identify Public WiFi services offered by other government authorities or community organisations within the local council area.
This type of Public WiFi survey has not previously been conducted with local government authorities in Australia, but there is a strong model for this approach in the work undertaken in the US by Craig Settles for the International Economic Development Council.
It is anticipated the survey will be conducted and results released in 2014.
