If there is just one word that we love to hear these days, it has to be “Free!” and anyone with a laptop, netbook or Smartphone visiting the City of York will be able to benefit from free Wi-Fi this autumn, when a trail starts.
According to Councillor James Alexander, who is the Labour leader of City of York Council, he said;
This should see York join what is still only a handful of town and cities in the country offering free Wi-Fi. Internet access is now an essential part of our everyday working and private lives and this initiative – Digital York – will be a step change in the ambition we have for the city. We hope that the initial trial will be successful and provide a real boost to local businesses, visitors and shoppers.
It is a great idea for city and town centres to offer free Wi-Fi; it attracts people and keeps them there longer, which city will be next to offer such a service?
