Residents in Hertford are set to benefit from a new wireless broadband service which is being launched in the town's centre.
Network provider Vtesse is planning to launch the internet service, which will be available on laptops, mobile wireless devices, iPhone and smartphone users, in the spring.
As part of the pilot period, 100 users will also be given access to the wireless service at no extra charge.
Aidan Paul, Chief Executive of Vtesse, said it was fitting that the company was launching the technology in its hometown.
He added: "Giving our business people, citizens and visitors to the town such an edge puts Hertford right at the very forefront of the rapidly developing mobile internet world which frankly is precisely where we should be."
Vtesse recently confirmed its involvement in the Final Third First campaign, which is calling on the government to provide adequate broadband access to areas with no current services.
