Who is behind free WiFi?
Free CambWifi was set up by Cambridgeshire County Council and extended with funding from the Government’s SuperConnected Cities project to improve superfast broadband connectivity and expand wireless technology in Cambridge and surrounding economic areas of South Cambridgeshire.
The University of Cambridge has also invested in the network, providing access via The Cloud in open spaces, and extending its existing education Wifi networks to all Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin students, staff and visiting academics.
The Connecting Cambridgeshire programme is now working with Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, local councils and partners to increase free public access Wifi provision in public buildings, open spaces and retail centres in cities and market towns, whilst increasing availability in active village halls and community buildings in rural areas.
