Swindon is to be become Britain’s first “wi-fi town” with free internet access available to all its 186,000 residents. A £1 million network of 1,400 “access points” similar to the wireless routers installed in millions of homes will be sited at strategic locations around the Wiltshire town. The free network, named the ‘Swindon mesh’, will allow all residents access to the internet but will not be fast enough for streaming films without a fee. Subscribers can sign up for 20Mb upgrades for “significantly less per month than major broadband competitors” following a free three-month trial, the council said.
