Residents and visitors in Wisbech, March, Chatteris and Whittlesey will be able to enjoy free public WiFi this summer. The project, which will involved rolling out superfast broadband to another 5,300 homes and businesses in rural areas, was made possible by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority as well as Government grants and commercial investments.
Mayor James Palmer said the commitment to "outstanding digital connectivity" would ensure the growth of the local economy.
"Strong mobile and broadband networks, together with free public access Wifi in our market towns, are key to this and it's good to see work to achieve this is well underway," he said.
County council leader Steve Count said: "Cambridgeshire is a leading digital county and digital connectivity is a 'game changer' for our businesses and communities to be able to thrive."
