Free BT Wi-Fi has been made available in Glasgow in time for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

This Urban Wireless network - delivered through a partnership between Glasgow City Council and BT - will offer 24-hour access to the internet in the city centre.

BT has installed wireless points in high footfall areas, transport hubs and the city's community centre, ensuring everyone can get online via their 3G and 4G mobile devices.

This is the first time BT has launched public Wi-Fi services in a Scottish city.

A second phase of the rollout - to be undertaken in early 2015 - will ensure broadband coverage is more widely available in Scotland's second city.

BT Scotland Partnerships Director James McClafferty said that, thanks to BT's Wireless Cities Programme, Glasgow will be the first city in Scotland to offer free urban Wi-Fi.

"We’re extremely proud of helping the city move to the very forefront of digital connectivity," he stated.

"BT has the UK's largest Wi-Fi network with more than five million hotspots and we’ve an excellent track record of delivering large-scale, reliable communication services."
