Watts promises wifi at hundreds of tourism hotspots

TOOWOOMBA North MP Trevor Watts has promised to install 500 wifi hotspots at key tourist destinations across the region and the state - but only if the LNP wins at the next election.

Mr Watts said the technology would be a vital investment to ensure tourists could stay connected during a trip to Toowoomba.

"The LNP will commit $3 million over three years towards a program to install wifi hotspots at key tourism destinations across the state," Mr Watts said.

"These wifi hotspots will be established through grants to local councils which will be responsible for setting up the network to ensure tourists are connected to the world.

"We have an amazing range of natural and man-made tourism assets that are unique to Queensland and set our state apart from other destinations around Australia.

"We want visitors to our state to have access to technology so they can jump online and post their happy snaps to social media or to send them to family or friends."
