Free wifi on beach and prom.

FREE Wi-Fi is being made available on part of Colwyn Bay beach and promenade in a threeyear pilot project by Conwy Council.

People can now access the internet with their mobiles, laptops and tablets on the beach and promenade from Porth Eirias to the pier.

The free WiFi zone is identified by signs on lampposts.

Cllr Mike Priestley, Conwy's cabinet member for communication said, "We recognise that having access to information quickly is increasingly important, with benefits for both users and businesses. There's already free public access WiFi available in council offices, and now having this service available on the beach and promenade is another great facility for Colwyn Bay waterfront.

"We believe Conwy is the first council in North Wales to provide free WiFi in an outdoor location like this."

There will be some restrictions in place including the types of sites and content that can be accessed, the times of access and, to make sure that as many people as possible are able to make use of the service, there may be limits on the bandwidth speeds for users.

Residents and visitors logging-on to the free WiFi will also be able to find out what's going on in Colwyn Bay.
