Residents, businesses and visitors in Wetherby will soon have access to free public WiFi that offers speeds of up to 1gigabits per second. With this speed, users will be able to download an HD feature film in less than one minute using their laptops and mobile phones.
The service is delivered in partnership with IntechnologyWiFi, the Harrogate-based provider of next-generation digital infrastructure, who will also manage the free public WiFi on behalf of Wetherby Town Council.
A Wetherby Town Council spokesman said: “We are delighted that IntechnologyWiFi is investing in Wetherby to increase our access to the digital economy.
“We appreciate that we have a charming, historic town and we like that, but equally we recognise that technology is always moving forwards and creating new opportunities for business and tourism. “It’s wonderful that Wetherby will be at the forefront of technology. Free public WiFi will attract more people into our town centre and is a real advantage for us and for local businesses.”
Natalie Duffield, chief executive of IntechnologyWiFi, said: “Wetherby is a beautiful town with a rich history but internet access has been patchy which can limit opportunities in this digital age.
