Telecommunications giant Telstra announced today that "free and unlimited" wi-fi would be available at 4,000 public locations around Australia for Tuesday June 20 only.

The promotion is to mark the activation of the 1 millionth site in the Telstra Air wi-fi network, activated at Mildura on Monday. Normally, only eligible Telstra customers are able to access the Air hotspots for free, but the gates will be flung open for Tuesday to anyone with a wi-fi device.

Telstra Air general manager Viveca Samuelsson said Australians were "getting savvier" at using wi-fi hotspots instead of using up their mobile data allowances, with Air usage more than doubling in the past 12 months.

How To Find Free And Safe Public Wi-Fi

  How To Find Free And Safe Public Wi-Fi Venture out beyond the reach of your safe, familiar home wi-fi network and getting online can sometimes be a challenge. Fortunately, a growing number of bars, restaurants, shops and cities now offer free wi-fi -- though these tantalising pools of connectivity vary in terms of their speed and reliability. Anywhere you can get food and drink, or buy something, or stay the night, is a good place to start in your search for free wi-fi (or at least, no-extra-charge wi-fi).

Here ' s how to get on board. There are one million hotspots , but of these, only 4 , 000 are publicly available. You can generally find these at Telstra stores and at payphones with the pink Wi - Fi box on top.

Instead, it seems that there are funds to equip almost 8000 towns in Europe with free public Wi - Fi . The costs for the Wi - Fi hotspots maintenance and for eventual subscriptions (or license purchases) will not be covered by European funds. Do you want to get help with your project?

"With a million hotspots now live, our eligible mobile and broadband customers can tap into free and unlimited Wi-Fi data to stream, share and post at more of their favourite beach areas, parks, shopping precincts and holiday destinations," she said.

Below are the connection instructions from the telco if you have a wi-fi device on June 20 at a Telstra Air hotspot, which are usually located at pink payphone booths and some Telstra retail stores:

Step 1: Open the list of available networks on your mobile device and connect to 'Telstra Free Wi-Fi'

Step 2: A pop up browser should automatically open. If it doesn't:

-Open an internet browser on your device (Safari, Google Chrome, IE etc)

-Try to access any website (Facebook, YouTube)

-This will trigger the portal to open

Step 3: Click 'connect' to accept the Terms and conditions

Step 4: You will see a 'success' screen and can now access free wi-fi
