Liverpool residents are being invited to try out wireless broadband services as part of a four-day event to launch BT's Wireless City scheme.
The telecommunications giant and Liverpool council worked together on the scheme, which allow residents to access the internet remotely in the city centre.
Access will be available from Pembroke Place, to the west of Liverpool University, to the Three Graces, across Albert Dock and up to Rodney Street, the Liverpool Daily Post.
In tandem with providing wireless web access, BT is collaborating with Liverpool City Council to probe how the technology might be used in wireless applications to improve standards of environmental services, traffic management and tourism in the area.
Councillor Warren Bradley said: "Our desire to be a Wireless City is about reaching out to people in new ways and improving the quality of peoples lives through opportunities afforded by new technology."
In total 12 cities have signed up to BT's Wireless City scheme, including Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Cardiff and Westminster in central London.
