Virgin Media brings free Wi-Fi to Leeds and Bradford
Virgin Media is bringing free Wi-Fi to Bradford and Leeds city centres by rolling out its small cell wireless networks.
The service will launch in the New Year and will be free to use. It follows trials Virgin Media Business conducted during the summer of its small cell technology. The first areas that will be switched on are Briggate in Leeds and Bridge Street in Bradford, with Leeds' Millennium Square and Bradford's City Park following shortly afterwards.
Kevin Baughan, director of wireless for Virgin Media Business, said: 'Small cells can transform the mobile experience by providing the connectivity needed to match the explosive broadband demand from the rapidly growing number of smartphones and tablets. In Leeds and Bradford, we’re working with both the local authorities and mobile operators to put in place the infrastructure that will give residents, consumers and businesses access to the wireless connectivity that they need.'
