Dezines Internet - Wednesday, April 01, 2015

Newport Transport Bus Passengers can enjoy superfast connectivity on their bus journey with free Wi-Fi from the 1st of April. This comes as part of the Superconnected Cities programme, the Department of Culture, Media and Sport will fund the three year contract, with Newport Transport funding the fourth year of the programme.


Councillor Bob Bright said:

'Having superfast broadband readily available in our city is vital to not only increasing productivity but to stimulate econimic growth'.

'In addition to making travel more productive, Wi-Fi access will make any commute more fun too, with access to social networks, online games and entertainment'.

'The next stage of our superfast broadband journey is to have Wi-Fi publically and freely available on public transport and I welcome the news that this will be available on Newport Transport buses.'
