Free Wi-Fi launched in Winchester city centre

Winchester City Council has launched the new service which will be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, helping to support the city’s reopened businesses.

The Wi-Fi coverage includes Winchester Railway Station and all of the High Street, as well as The Broadway, King Alfred statue, Jewry Street and The Square, enabling residents and visitors alike to remain connected as they shop, eat and go about their day. Those who sign up will also be eligible to receive updates and special offers of interest.

Cabinet Member for Service Quality and Transformation, Cllr Martin Tod, said:

“Free Wi-Fi won’t just be useful for visitors and residents but will be good for business too. It’s more and more common to need to book a table or a cinema ticket, or check opening times when you’re out and about in the city. And visitors often want to look up information on what’s on and where to go.

“In today’s world, it’s so important to stay connected and access information quickly, so we’re delighted to be offering this free service and take away the worry of data charges. With coverage extending around the High Street, Wi-Fi will also help support businesses as they continue to welcome back customers.”
