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.

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