Free WiFi unveiled by council

WITH PICS

COOKSTOWN District Council has unveiled free Wi-Fi services throughout four of its sites.

The Wi-Fi has also been rolled out to the main Council offices, the Burnavon Theatre, Cookstown Leisure Centre and Ballyronan Marina and Caravan Park.

Chairman of Cookstown District Council, Councillor Tony Quinn, called into some of the Council sites to access the new service.

He said: “The Council has continued to improve on our services to our customers.

“The access provided with our new Wi-Fi service will allow customers to gain mobile access to information while visiting the Leisure Centre and current berth holders, visiting boats to the area, or holiday makers utilizing the caravan facilities at Ballyronan Marina.”

Visitors to the Council facilities will now be able to access the internet with quicker connection speeds, sending text messages, tweet and browse social media websites.

More and more people are using smartphones to browse the internet with every passing day so the demand in public places is only set to become more intense, so convenient access to the Internet will become more and more important.

The free-to-use public Wi-Fi system will be supplemented with a pay-for service on a short or long-term basis. Further information and subscription services are now available online at www.cookstown.gov.uk or from any building reception point.
