    Virgin bringing free WiFi to Leeds-Bradford


    Virgin Media will install free public WiFi access in four locations across Leeds and Bradford in late 2012 and early 2013. The deployment is the first outside London to take place under the UK Government’s super connected city initiative.

    The first locations to open in time for the New Year will be Briggate in Leeds and Bridge Street in Bradford, followed by Millennium Square in Leeds and City Park in Bradford early in 2013. The service will be operated for Virgin Media Business by its partner Global Reach Technology.

    Kevin Baughan, Director of Wireless, Virgin Media Business explained: “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.”
