Wi-Fi for Westminster Libraries

As part of Westminster's 'Wireless City' project, the council were proud to announce on Thursday the completion of the roll out of Wi-Fi, offering Wireless Internet access, to all their libraries. The service uses BT Openzone access points in each of the 13 libraries, to provide the relevant infrastructure for people to connect. The use of the Wi-Fi service is chargeable in the standard BT Openzone structure.

The Wireless City project, started in April 2004, aims to offer:

  • Improved remote working by council workers, giving access to the corporate network anywhere in Westminster
  • Remote noise and street environment monitoring to improve delivery of council services such as parking, licensing and environmental health inspections
  • Flexible and responsive CCTV to help deliver a safer street environment
