Free WiFi in Auckland

There are a large number of places where you will find free WiFi in Auckland City. Whether you do not want to spend money on a travel sim card or you are here only for a brief stay, do not worry here are some local tips on finding reliable and free WiFi in Auckland City.

Auckland City’s free WiFi service is called AucklandWiFi@Tomizone. Found in public spaces across the city, all users have 30 minutes per day, per device. Once this time limit has been exhausted, you may continue to use by opting to pay a fee.

Most community centres across the city will have a free WiFi on access. Wi-Fi services are also available at the Auckland Art Gallery and Auckland Botanic Gardens.

Another simple option is popping into one of the many Auckland cafes. A sign will either be in clear view or go up and ask one of the friendly waiters. This option is a nice way of being able to sit down, enjoy a drink (maybe a treat from the cabinet too) and embrace the Auckland lifestyle. Local workers have really embraced the free WiFi in cafes and can/will spend hours at a time working on files while sipping away on their flat white.   

Trying to research and google where to go on holiday can be a total hassle. The best way to see a new city is strolling the back streets with a knowlegable local. It’s the perfect way to find your feet instead of wasting half your trip looking for some good WiFi. So book our Hello Auckland or Taste Auckland walking tours to get the real deal on where to eat, shop and go.
