A secure public access Wi-Fi network has been made available in Peterborough city centre with funding from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA).

It is part of the CambWifi network, which is being rolled out to town centres and public buildings in the regin.

It is freely available accepting its terms and logging in through a device’s Wi-Fi settings.

Dr Nik Johnson, mayor of CPCA, said: “In funding the CambWifi rollout through the streets and open spaces of Peterborough’s city centre, we’re helping Peterborough shout the message that it’s open for business.  We’re helping local traders to plug into today’s technology and sharing a huge social benefit that contributes to a better connected community with more engagement between residents, visitors, and local traders. 

“It also gives more freedom to the people of Peterborough, offering access to the internet without cost while out and about. It’s something for everyone, whether using it for business or social reasons. And it’s especially advantageous for people in Peterborough who don’t yet have internet at home.”
