West Arnhem Regional Council has welcomed the installation of public WiFi to three separate sites in Gunbalanya, Maningrida and Warruwi as part of an Northern Territory Libraries (NTL) initiative.

With public internet access predominately unavailable in remote communities, the NTL initiative will greatly benefit residents in these three communities who are now able to access publicWiFi services with their personal devices at the Warruwi Council Office, Gunbalanya Youth Centre and Maningrida Pool.

West Arnhem Regional Council Manager Community Services – Head of Division, Adrian McCann, said the establishment of WiFi in these communities will greatly benefit residents who can now connect to the internet for free.
