Free Wifi gives Huntingdonshire market towns a boost

Updated: Jan 18


Free public access Wifi is now live in Huntingdonshire market towns bringing a welcome pre-Christmas boost for local businesses and residents. CambWifi is available in Ramsey, St Neots, and St Ives market places and town centre streets, with Huntingdon coming soon - providing safe internet access and free data to help everyone stay connected through and beyond the Covid pandemic. As well as keeping people in touch and backing local businesses, the free Wifi supports Covid safety measures such as using contactless payments while shopping for essentials, registering for ‘track and trace’ using QR codes, or accessing the latest local health advice and support. The CambWifi network has been extended by Cambridgeshire County Council’s Connecting Cambridgeshire programme, with the support of Huntingdonshire District Council, and additional funding for market towns from Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority. CambWifi is safe and simple to join in a few short steps* via CambWiFi_Public The secure network is also widely available in public buildings, libraries, leisure centres and park & ride sites across the county, so users only need to register once to be able to get free internet access. Business and community leaders have welcomed the provision of free CambWifi through collaboration and investment by local authorities, which recognises the importance of digital connectivity for everyone – now and for the future prosperity of the region.
