The city of Norwich has launched a free Wi-Fi network for its citizens.

Norfolk Open Link is the UK’s largest free wireless data network after going live earlier this month.

It is the only network in the UK that offers free mobile internet access for public sector employees, the business community and the general public.

The £1.1m two-year pilot project, running until April 2008, is designed to evaluate the impact and potential of mobile technology.

It is managed by Norfolk County Council and is fully funded by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA).

Norfolk Open Link’s website,, provides information on the network area and how to access the service.

Anyone with a wireless enabled laptop, personal digital assistant (PDA) and internet enabled mobile phone will be able to use the network.
