The Cloud Brings FREE WiFi to Great Yarmouth UK Town Centre

Wednesday, Mar 27th, 2013 (11:11 am) - Score 1,922

The Cloud (BSkyB) has announced that its free wireless internet (wifi) service is now also available across the town centre in Great Yarmouth (England, UK), which was made possible by pigging backing a new wireless CCTV system.

The town apparently hopes that this will provide a boost for the local economy with free WiFi increasing dwell time in the town centre and hopefully encouraging people to shop, eat out and spend more time there.

Jonathan Newman, Great Yarmouth’s Town Centre Manager, said:

CCTV is crucial to our commitment to providing a safe visitor experience in our town centre, and the wireless network ensures the long term viability of this scheme. The added benefit of being able to make free WiFi available further improves the offer that Great Yarmouth makes to its consumers whilst providing a potential boost for the local economy with visitors being directed to the Great Yarmouth tourism mobile website which promotes local businesses and facilities.”

The idea was implemented by Quadrant Security Group (QSG), the council’s CCTV partner, and is being managed by the Community Safety Company (Great Yarmouth) Ltd. which is responsible for Great Yarmouth’s CCTV strategy and management.
