After a full year of trials and a rollout across Australia, Telstra has finally launched their extended Wi-Fi network for Telstra Home Broadband customers under the name Telstra Air.
The network offers Telstra Home Broadband customers the option to use their Home Broadband data cap at thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots located all around Australia, and through the Fon network: around the world. The Fon network offers Telstra customers the option to access their data cap from millions of hotspots in countries like the UK, Japan, Germany, South Africa and France.
To promote the launch, Telstra is running a competition using social media, beginning on July 1st. The competition gives people the chance to win one of five Huawei Talkband B2 fitness tracker/Bluetooth headsets valued at $249 each, by taking their photo with a piece of Magenta furniture strategically located around Australia and sharing it on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #pieceofhome. To locate the furniture, Telstra will post clues daily on the Telstra Facebook and Twitter feed to let you know where the furniture is for that day. Full terms and conditions can be found here.
