Free Wi-Fi coming to 1,000 public buildings in UK
More than 1,000 public buildings in the UK will gain free Wi-Fi by March 2015.A host of cities up and down the UK are in the process of having their connectivity upgraded thanks to new Wi-Fi technology.
The move means that millions of people across the country will gain access to the service, with some experiencing superfast speeds for the first time.
Many of the locations included in the upgrade have already had Wi-Fi installed, but a great deal more are set to follow, with the government stating the project will be completed in March 2015.
The scheme has been named SuperConnected Cities, which has seen a total of £150 million spent on increasing the provision of the technology.
Digital Economy Minister Ed Vaizey explained that the move would be beneficial for a wide range of internet users.
He said: "These free hotspots will be instrumental in making UK cities even more appealing as places to not only do business, but to visit as well."
