Leeds and Bradford to become super-connected cities

Leeds and Bradford are to become the UK’s first super-connected cities outside of London

It is due to new mobile connectivity technology from Virgin Media Business.

In the first phase of the cities’ plans to provide people with better connectivity ‘small cell’ technology – shoebox-sizeddevices that transform the mobile experience by boosting capacity - will go live from January 2013.

1.2 million people will have access to free public Wi-Fi that’s three times the speed of 3G services, but this technology signals the beginning of a hyper-connected, digital future for citizens and local businesses.
