Powys County Council has launched an open access wi-fi system covering key areas of the town of Llandrindod Wells, backed by Section 106 funds.
The system has been installed in several locations around the town, including the public transport interchange, the Rock Park and the town’s lake.
Residents and visitors can access the wi-fi by logging in via a portal page that is part of the town’s new website.
The new system has been funded through a Powys CC regeneration grant and a development fund provided by Tesco under a Section 106 agreement - developer contributions to make planning proposals acceptable.
Wi-fi has been installed in key parts of the town
Cllr Avril York, Powys’ cabinet member for regeneration, said: ‘Access to wi-fi is something people expect so I’m delighted that Llandrindod Wells has become the first town in the whole of Wales to have a free open access system that residents and visitors can use.
‘The system will benefit local people, residents and visitors and will provide access at places in Llandrindod Wells where events and gatherings take place.’
Work to install the system was carried out by Welsh company Telemat.
