The government has revealed that over 1,000 public buildings, including libraries, museums and sporting complexes, will be fitted with free WiFi hotspots as part of efforts to make the UK as digitally connected as possible.
The hotspots are in Aberdeen, Belfast, Brighton & Hove, Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Derby, Derry, Edinburgh, Leeds, Bradford, London, Manchester, Oxford, Perth, Portsmouth and Salford.
The move is designed to provide fast, secure internet access in as many locations as possible, which digital minister Ed Vaizey has described as essential to the UK.
"For business, visitors and the UK public, accessing WiFi in our cities is absolutely vital," he said.
"I'm delighted this government scheme is on track. These free hotspots will be instrumental in making UK cities even more attractive as places not only to do business, but to visit."
London's National Gallery, Imperial War Museum and National Portrait Gallery are among the locations that will offer free WiFi, along with the Central Library and Moss Side Leisure Centre in Manchester.
Some locations have already gone live, and the remainder should be online no later than March 2015. The rollout and installation of the networks is being funded by the £150m super-connected cities scheme unveiled last year.
WiFi rollouts in public locations are increasing all the time. Virgin Media has installed access throughout the London Underground, and BT now boasts more than five million WiFi hotspots around the UK.
