Free public access WiFi has already been provided to around 150 sites across Cambridgeshire and plans are being developed to support village halls and community buildings.
The programme will support emerging masterplans and increase digital inclusion by expanding public access WiFi services in market towns, so more people can get online in public buildings and open spaces.
Connecting Cambridgeshire is rolling out a new free public WiFi network in a growing range of locations in Cambridge and surrounding areas.
