A PROJECT to allow residents, visitors and students to connect to free wifi in public buildings across Portsmouth has begun with the switch on of the free My City WiFi at five locations.

It marks the first part of My City WiFi, a government-funded project that aims to allow everyone in the city free access to digital information.

The project is being delivered by Portsmouth City Council and the University of Portsmouth.

Portsmouth Park and Ride, city museum, the council chamber inside Portsmouth Guildhall, the city learning & information centre at Chaucer House and Somerstown Central Community Centre are the first locations to go live.

Another 40 locations in the city are set to benefit from the service by the end of March.
