James welcomes free public wi-fi in Bexley’s town centres

James Brokenshire has welcomed Bexley Council’s ‘switch on’ of free public wi-fi in Sidcup, Welling, Erith and Crayford town centres with Bexley Village and Bexleyheath expected to follow shortly.

People living, working or visiting the town centres can now start to enjoy a fantastic new free public wi-fi service. The network requires a one-time only registration and allows users to experience high bandwidth services free from advertisements. As well as supporting existing 3G and 4G networks, the new Bexley free town centre WiFi is ready for the coming 5G networks.

Commenting on the rollout, James said:

“This is a significant step for our town centres and ensures that Bexley is at the forefront of connectivity and digital readiness. Reliable, fast internet on the go is a modern necessity which underpins convenience and economic growth which is why I welcome the rollout of free wi-fi in Bexley. I am therefore sure this initiative will be welcomed by local residents and businesses alike and hope it promotes shopping locally on our brilliant high streets.”
