Birmingham Free Wi-Fi

Project timeframe: Current

Birmingham City Council and Virgin Media Business have launched free public WiFi across the city centre, giving residents, shoppers and tourists access to unlimited data services on the go.

Access points – roughly the size of a shoe-box – have been mounted on lamp-posts and other street furniture across the city centre and connected back into Virgin Media Business' nationwide fibre optic network to ensure unlimited, super-fast connectivity.

People are able to do everything from streaming videos, to staying in touch with friends on Twitter or Instagram, to looking up the latest bus timetables via the hotspot ID '_Bham Free WiFi'. With no usage limits, people are also able to download content or surf the web for as long as they need.

Unlimited free Wi-Fi now available in Birmingham city centre providing 2.5 square miles of coverage
