News: intechnologyWiFi boosts Watford’s smart town credentials.
Watford has connected its town centre with free wi-fi in a partnership with intechnologyWiFi.
The project will connect users from the town hall down to the Parade and High Street areas, with planning currently underway to extend coverage further.
intechnologyWiFi launched an accompanying microsite with a log-on guide, coverage map and frequently asked questions.
The wi-fi and installation were undertaken at no cost to the council or its users.
The project is part of Watford’s plan to become a ‘smart’ town, able to benefit from the Internet of Things.
"Beyond the opportunities for individuals, with public WiFi supporting them in achieving seamless connectivity, Watford Borough Council are now in a great position to harness the innumerable benefits of smart city initiatives," said Natalie Duffield, CEO of intechnologyWiFi.
