Free Public Wi-Fi

The most interesting headline that caught my eye this morning was that the City of Belfast is to have free public wireless internet available in future.

Belfast City Council wants to offer free wireless internet to all residents and visitors.

Belfast is one of ten cities in the UK which have secured super-connected status from the government.

The city council has already received £6m in funding and is hoping to more than double that in a forthcoming bid.

It will use that money to put a wireless network in place covering an area stretching out from City Hall in a three mile radius.

It also plans to ensure that ultra-fast broadband internet connections are widely available - making the city an attractive investment location for media and technology firms.

The plan is to have the new networks in place by 2015.
