THE FREE wi-fi network being trialled in the centre of York has been accessed almost 1.1 million times since it was launched two months ago.
The initiative covers St Helen’s Square and Coney Street and provides a free wireless connection for laptops, smart phones and other devices as part of City of York Council’s Reinvigorate York scheme.
Coun Julie Gunnell, the council’s cabinet member for corporate services, said: “This service really puts York on the national electronic map and the figures show the trial is proving really popular.”
