Business reaction to Wi-Fi Swindon

Business people took the opportunity this morning to network and get an update on the new Swindon Wi-Fi project.
At an event organised by the Swindon Chamber at the Marriott Hotel, where Rikki Hunt, project leader, spoke on the roll-out plan of the Wi-Fi scheme and the benefits to the business community.

”It's an opportunity to talk about the facts of the project and for people to ask questions on what is a big undertaking," said Mr Hunt, Chief Executive of Digital City, who are delivering the Council-backed initiative.
Acknowledging the challenges the scheme had faced during its launch period in Highworth, Mr Hunt added: “Just like mobile phone signal reception, some areas are far better connected than others, but we’re improving coverage ever day.
“The system works, it’s the first of its kind in the UK, and when we start to roll out the technology to the rest of Swindon, we’ll all see the social and businesses benefits it will bring.”
