Free public Wi-Fi is to be made available in and around Cambridge, covering more than 100 public buildings and open spaces.

Cambridgeshire County Council has announced the launch of the CambWifi wireless broadband network, which will go live over the coming weeks.

Free Wi-Fi will be made available at leisure facilities, libraries, sheltered housing and other sites owned by the local authority.

Lewis Herbert, Leader of Cambridge City Council, said Cambridge is "fast becoming a super-connected city" and needs to be to remain a national leader on innovative technology.

"Our partnership launch of Public Access Wi-Fi enables people of all ages - whether residents, students or visitors - to access the internet easily on the go," he stated.

"It is also great to extend free Public Wi-Fi to community centres and council buildings across Cambridge, including parts of the city gaining free Wi-Fi for the first time."

Councillor Herbert said the council would welcome further offers of support as it looks to expand free Wi-Fi access across Cambridge and the surrounding area.
