Camden public Wi-Fi goes live header image

Published: 14th May 2013

Camden council has launched a new free public Wi-Fi service. 

It is the first of 17 local authorities across London to secure deals that will provide a wireless internet network that residents, businesses and visitors will be able to access for 30 minutes free of charge each day. 

They will then have the option to stay online by purchasing extra time from their provider of choice. 

However, Camden Council's online services will be accessible free of charge 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The service will be rolled out across the borough from June 1st until the end of next year. Areas with high footfall will be the first to be connected.

Councillor Theo Blackwell, cabinet member for finance, said: "Our aim is to make Camden one of the most connected places in the country. This is great news for residents who will be able to access Wi-Fi services in public and open spaces."
