This post has been updated to reflect the extension of our original offer.

Can you believe we’re more than halfway through 2016?  Whilst it may not feel like it right now, spring and summer are just around the corner, so to help you get the most out of these months, we’re extending the Telstra Air Free Wi-Fi Offer until 27 March 2017. That means more check-ins, more selfies and more streaming your favourite sports and entertainment for eligible Telstra mobile and home broadband customers.

And with the network growing to more than 400,000 hotspots across the nation, there have never been more places to connect for free.

So let’s check out what’s hot for the rest of the year.
