Free public Wi-Fi installed in city centre market

Public Wi-Fi has been installed in all areas of the Trinity Market, in Hull city centre.

It means shoppers at the market as well as traders can take advantage of free and secure internet access.

Local telecommunications company, Connexin, was procured to install the scheme to provide a high-speed public Wi-Fi connection.

Councillor Paul Drake-Davis, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder for regeneration, said: “There’s a range of benefits to making Hull a more connected city.

“I know being able to digitally connect to their customers is vitally important for today’s small businesses, and I know customers like to stay connected when they visit the market.

“I’m pleased we have been able to bring free public Wi-Fi to the market, which is an important hub of activity in our city centre.”

The Trinity Market was first opened in 1904, primarily selling fruit and vegetables. It underwent a multi-million pound investment in 2017 before the new-look market was unveiled in 2018.
