Launch of free city centre WiFi in Coventry by IntechnologySmartCities
IntechnologySmartCities’ latest WiFi launch in Coventry City Centre coincided with Coventry’s Christmas lights switch-on on November 21st. The blanket, super-fast WiFi connection is free to use, and available to all within the central Broadgate area of Coventry.
The launch marks the start of Coventry’s free WiFi rollout, with further availability planned across the wider city centre through early 2019.
IntechnologySmartCities has already enjoyed several successful deployments in towns and cities azcross the UK, having recently topped 1 million users for their free WiFi service.
Rob Woollard, Head of Product Marketing of IntechnologySmartCities, said “Coventry is going to become one of the first places in the UK to have a city-wide IoT network.”
“This will make the city more aware of itself, allowing public service providers to respond in real time to challenges and opportunities and use the network data to improve working processes and decision making.”
“Innovators can use the network to build exciting new applications to boost productivity, encourage healthy living, save energy and make homes more comfortable. We are excited to be investing in Coventry and rolling out our technology to connect, inform and engage users for the benefit of everyone with a stake in the success of the next UK city of Culture.”
The next-generation wireless service offers blanket, seamless connectivity for users and is just one of the innovations Coventry can look forward to in the near future.
