People living in Norwich could benefit from a new internet project in the city, it has been reported.

Babcock International is proposing a new Wi-Fi network project which would be running throughout the city centre by April 2010, reports the Norwich Evening News.

The firm is set to meet with business leaders to discuss the Wi-Fi scheme which would be opened up to businesses and individuals, focusing on key city centre areas such as the University of East Anglia (UAE) campus.

Stefan Gurney, Norwich City Centre Partnership Manager, told the newspaper anything which would promote the city for tourism "has got to be good".

He added: ""If there is potential to provide a wireless network for the city centre, UEA and City College - they are three areas where there would be high usage.

"These would be the initial areas and I understand they would then review it as the need and requirements arose."

Scottish Labour recently claimed that free wireless internet access should be made available to the public on all public transport in the country.
