The historic market town of Framlingham is set to get free public WiFi as part of the Digital Town Project. The initiative, which aims to drive economic growth across East Suffolk through digital advancements, is made possible by Framlingham Town Council, Framlingham Business Association and East Suffolk Council. Along with free WiFi, geo-sense footfall tracking technology and business support, such as cashless payment facilities – will also be installed.
The free public WiFi is expected to be live by mid summer and town centre visitors should have access to 5MB.
“The concept is a simple one,” said Nick Khan, ESC's strategic director, “take a small rural town in the heart of east Suffolk and explore what is possible in terms of using digital and other technology to help the town and its communities thrive.
“We will see what works, what' doesn't and use that learning and evidence to expand the concept across the whole of East Suffolk.
“The contracts have been signed with the contractors and we are currently working on finalising the finer details – we hope to be able to start work very soon.”
