Poole Park to offer wireless internet to visitors

A Victorian park in Dorset is to embrace the 21st century by offering wireless internet to visitors.

In a few weeks' time visitors to Poole Park will be able to log on to the internet using a laptop or a mobile, free of charge.

The initiative from the Friends of Poole Park has been welcomed by nearby Bournemouth and Poole College and the Borough of Poole, who have both contributed towards the £8,000 funding.

There will be powerful routers in two park eateries, and the log-on zone will take in most of the park.

Bournemouth and Poole College marketing director Julie-Anne Houldey said the college was delighted to sponsor the project.

"It will be an excellent resource for students and staff at the college who can use their laptops while enjoying the beautiful Poole Park surroundings," she said.
