Newport Digital City logo 

The Super Connected Cities project is part of the council's plans to improve access to internet based services across the city. 

Newport is a digital city with great ways to access free wi-fi.

Newport City Council was awarded the Digital Communities Wales Digital Inclusion Charter (pdf) in July 2016.

For residents and visitors...

Free wi-fi in over 50 public buildings, on Newport buses, at the train and bus stations, Newport market and in streets within the city centre.  

The Friendly Wi-Fi symbol helps children, young people and adults find venues where wi-fi has been filtered to try and block inappropriate material, an accredited scheme with the UK Council for Child Internet Safety.

Residents and visitors can access Newport Community Cloud and Newport City Connect from any wireless enabled device.

For businesses...

Superfast broadband can benefit businesses of all sizes by enabling them to communicate better with customers, transfer data more quickly and operate more efficiently.
