Caerphilly Town Centre launches free public Wi-Fi

Town of Caerphilly, Wales, United Kingdom.

Caerphilly Town Centre has become the last town to benefit from free public access Wi-Fi. WiFi in Caerphilly is part of a wider provision that has already been rolled out in Bargoed, Blackwood, Newbridge, Rhymney, Risca and Ystrad Mynach. The initiative aims to improve the experience for visitors of the high street by helping people to access online stores and to engage with local businesses online.

The expansion of the free public Wi-Fi position has already been a success in the six other town centres across the county borough with the provision contributing towards the Council’s ongoing support to regenerate our town centres.

The initiative forms a key part of the choose local campaign that aims to encourage residents to #ChooseLocal and explore each of our key town centres to fulfil visitors shopping and everyday needs. Residents can connect devices in a vast area in and around the town centre.

The Wi-Fi can be accessed via the FreeCCBCWifi network. The platform will ask you to register your details before you log in, but you will only need to register your details once.

Cllr. Jamie Pritchard Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Prosperity, Regeneration and Climate Change commented:

“Keeping people connected while utilising our high streets is a massive boost for our town centres. This provision is another exciting opportunity to draw people back to local town centres.

Free public access Wi-Fi offers opportunities for people with limited or no broadband to access vital online local council, government and health care services. The service will also allow residents and local businesses to engage digital solutions to help improve the overall visitor experience for all”.
