People in Newcastle can now connect to free Wi-Fi in public buildings across the city.

The first 30 locations are online giving good coverage in main pedestrian routes around the city centre, Quayside and Gateshead's new town centre.

As part of the Go Digital Newcastle programme, BT is providing the service to 69 public buildings.

Buildings involved include the Civic Centre, Newcastle City Council customer service centres, Your Homes Newcastle centres, libraries and museums.

Newcastle has entered the super-league when it comes to providing Wi-Fi to our residents, business people and visitors.

Newcastle will have a digital infrastructure that will be the envy of many cities across the world."
