The City Centre & Harbour Community Council is holding a public meeting on Thursday 15th March at 7pm in the Conference Suite, Central Library.
The subject is Wireless Access in the City Centre.
The City Centre & Harbour Community Council is hosting this public meeting on Thursday night to discuss the possibility of installing a community wireless network that would enable city centre residents, businesses and visitors to access the internet for free. A similar scheme has been operating in Norfolk since July 2006 and is currently the largest free community wireless broadband network in the UK. It is two-year pilot project, run by Norfolk County Council, from August 2006 to April 2008, to evaluate the impact of mobile technology.
The team behind the Norfolk Open Link project hosted an interactive forum in Norwich to outline details of the project, including presentations on how the project evolved, was implemented and delivered. A representative of the City Centre & Harbour Community Council attended the forum and will report their findings at the public meeting.
All local residents of the city centre and harbour area are invited to attend the meeting, to be held at 7pm in the Wellgate Central Library Conference Suite.
