Another four London boroughs are to join the capital's public Wi-Fi scheme after rollout contracts were agreed with infrastructure provider Arqiva.

Wireless internet services are set to be introduced in Barnet, Brent, Harrow and Haringey over the next 12 months.

Arqiva will initially create public Wi-Fi hotspots in areas of heavy footfall - such as high streets - in order to offer connectivity to shoppers, tourists and businesspeople.

A variety of connectivity solutions are set to be used, including 3G and 4G small cells.

Arqiva has already secured similar contracts to provide public Wi-Fi in five other London boroughs - Camden, Wandsworth, Hounslow, Islington, and Hammersmith and Fulham.

Nicolas Ott, Managing Director of Telecoms at the firm, said Arqiva was "very happy" to be working with an increasing number of local authorities.

He said his company would help them "realise their digital ambitions with first-class Wi-Fi connectivity".
