More free wi-fi zones announced

Created on 09/07/2013 @ 12:26


Visitors to libraries, museums, leisure and youth centres operated by Powys County Council can now make use of a free Wi-Fi internet connection.

Thousands of people use the buildings every year and the council has introduced the service to enable customers to use their smartphones, laptops, tablet computers and other devices.

To use the free Wi-Fi, customers have to register their details with the council and this can be done at their nearest library, museum, leisure or youth centre. Once registered, they will be able to access the free Wi-fi from all of these buildings across the county.

MyTown Media Ltd, the parent company of MyWelshpool, has urged councils to create town centre wi-fi zones to encourage more tourism, so this latest development is welcomed.

Cllr Graham Brown, Cabinet Member responsible for Leisure, said: “More people than ever carry mobile devices which connect to the internet. By upgrading our public buildings with the latest technology, free internet access has been made available to all.

For more information, visit your local library, museum, leisure or youth centre.

Recently, Welshpool Town Council announced that a free wi-fi connection was available at the Tourist Information Centre.
