MS PATTEN (Northern Metropolitan) (14:56:51):
My question is for minister for transport. Victoria claims to be a state of progress and innovation and a major powerhouse for the Australian economy. In fact the Premier has said that Victoria leads the way in innovative technology companies and is home to some of Australia’s most important internet start-ups.
So in 2019 why is Victoria lagging behind the rest of the world in terms of internet services? There is still no wi-fi on any of our public transport systems.
As I travel through my electorate on the number 96, the number 1 and the number 86 trams, there is no wi-fi. So I ask the minister: has the minister investigated wi-fi on our network, and what was the response?
