Cardigan becomes the first town in Ceredigion to provide free public WiFi service. The service is now fully accessible in the town centre and covers the swimming pool, Mwldan, round the back of the Markethall and along the river in front of the castle and Priory Street.
Ann Stokoe, who managed the project on behalf of Menter Aberteifi, said: “While providing internet access for residents and visitors, the technology can collect information on visitor numbers and their movements that will inform plans for the future of the town.
“No personal data is collected unless people chose to opt-in for news and special offers.
“The project identified a number of buildings around town that would be in ideal locations to provide a joined-up signal for people to use. The owners of these businesses and the building owners were contacted to narrow down the search for the ideal spots.
“Thanks are due to all those businesses who took part in the consultation and thanks to those who have ended up hosting units as the project would not have been possible without their co-operation.”
