UK internet service provider Be Broadband is set to supply internet connections for the new Freerunner service, it has been revealed.

The firm will support the project, which has been founded to provide free public Wi-Fi to communities currently without existing connections.

Some 46 communities across the UK have been selected to receive the service for a minimum of three years, following a competition organised by Freerunner.

Tom Williams, Head of Operations at Be Broadband, said the firm agreed that Wi-Fi should be more widely available, and was "proud" to be part of this mission.

He stated: "Freerunner's attitude reminds me of what Be did for broadband when we created the first UK ADSL 2+ network.

"Our members are more likely to hang out in independent shops and cafes, so we're proud to hook up Freerunner communities with fast and unlimited broadband."

Be Broadband recently launched its Spread the Love campaign, through which subscribers receive £30 worth of credit for each new member they encourage to sign up before December 31st.
