Fort William is officially the latest town to receive free WiFi service. The project, which was first launched at Inverness City Centre, has already been rolled out to several communities across the North.
The scheme was funded by the Inverness and Highland City-Region Deal and will soon cover additional 14 communities across the Highland, including Invergordon, Alness, Dingwall, Drumnadrochit, Dornoch, Fort Augustus, Nairn, Portree, Ullapool, Tain, Wick and Thurso.
Chair of the Lochaber Committee, Councillor Andrew Baxter said: “This project is fantastic news for Fort William and I am sure it will be welcomed by everyone who lives here, as well as our many thousands of visitors.
“Digital connectivity is essential these days for daily life and the free access to WiFi will enable visitors and locals to make the most of local businesses by checking what’s on, where to visit in Lochaber, opening hours, accommodation and prices, as well as finding local job opportunities and keeping in touch with family and friends.”
