Free public Wi-Fi service for Carlisle city centre
A new free public Wi-Fi service has been launched in Carlisle.People working in and visiting Carlisle city centre are set to benefit from a free public Wi-Fi connection, thanks to the local council and network provider BT.
The service will be available in the area between the railway station and the cathedral, but a map showing the exact location of the hotspots can be seen on the Discover Carlisle website.
In addition, people in parts of nearby Longtown will be able to log on to free, wireless, unlimited internet due to the technology's arrival, with Brampton visitors set to be included in an extension to the service later this month.
Councillor Colin Glover, Leader of Carlisle City Council, commented: "We believe that this will make a significant contribution to our ambition to make Carlisle a digitally-connected city and will promote economic growth, support tourism and retail within the city and support the delivery of better mobile coverage within the district."
Altogether, there are approximately five million BT Wi-Fi hotspots located throughout the UK. The new wireless network in Carlisle will be managed by the telecoms giant for at least the next eight years.
