The Northern Territory is terabytes ahead of other parts of Australia when it comes to offering public wireless internet access (wi-fi), with free wi-fi in places as far-flung as Nhulunbuy airport. In Darwin, free public wi-fi is available in the Smith Street Mall, at the public library at Parliament House, and at the airport. Pocket WiFi is a more modern solution to the need for portable internet, compared with the dongle. A pocket WiFi modem is usually about the same size and shape as a deck of cards, and unlike a dongle can connect multiple devices simultaneously – to serve a household, for example, or connect your phone and your laptop at the same time.
