CambWifi now easier to access

CambWifi – the free, secure Wifi service available in hundreds of locations across the county, including cities, market towns and rural village halls across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough – is now easier to access than it was before.

A simple click to log in after accepting the Terms is all you need to do. Meaning new users no longer need to enter an email address and wait for a verification email to access CambWifi.

Existing users should be connected automatically. If not, or if you’re a new user, simply choose to connect to ‘CambWifi_Public’ via your device’s Wifi settings, accept the Terms, click ‘Log In’ and start browsing.

The new login process will only need to be completed once every six months. Users will then be connected automatically to the free Wifi network in all CambWifi locations across the county.

CambWifi is available in over 200 sites across the county – including libraries, leisure centres, community centres, children’s centres, sheltered housing schemes, council buildings, Park & Rides, some rural village halls plus some streets and open spaces in Ely, St Neots, St Ives, Ramsey, Huntingdon, Cambridge and Peterborough.

Connecting Cambridgeshire has enabled the roll-out of the free Wifi network since 2015. Funding from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority is now supporting the wider rollout of public access Wifi to more open spaces in market towns in collaboration with Cambridgeshire County Council and the District Councils.

Free public access Wifi has a significant part to play in supporting high street businesses and can also contribute to supporting health and well-being for residents and visitors to any area where it is freely available. It supports shopping, outdoor markets and cafes making it easier for everyone to use apps and make cardless payments
