Free wifi expanded in city centre

First published in

Visitors to Bradford’s City Park will be able to take advantage of free public Wi-Fi from Monday as part of a scheme to boost broadband and wireless capabilities in the city.

It follows the switch-on of the same technology in Bridge Street shortly before Christmas, thanks to a collaboration between Bradford and Leeds councils, Virgin Media Business and Global Reach Technology.

Now the City Park becomes the second area to allow visitors and businesses to rapidly access the internet and video streaming on smart phones and tablet computers.

The scheme is part of a wider programme to enable easy and fast online access to residents, visitors and businesses in Bradford and Leeds. It is intended to provide ultra-fast broadband speeds of 100Mbps or more to all premises within the core area – which is both city centres, out towards Shipley and the transport corridor into Bradford, as well as the Aire Valley.

In addition the scheme will include a free city centre wireless service and wireless connectivity for passengers on trains and buses travelling between the two cities.
