Wi-Fi provider, Bitbuzz, has launched a new service called Bitbuzz Freedom, which provides free Wi-Fi access in outdoor locations. As a result, Grafton St has become the first street in Ireland to offer a fully managed complimentary Wi-Fi service to the public.
With Bitbuzz Freedom, members of the public can now browse the web and check emails from their smartphones on Grafton Street at no cost. Once registered with Bitbuzz, shoppers and tourists will all be able to benefit from the service, which will be a boost to businesses in the area. The service will later will be expanded to Henry Street, Smithfield, Temple Bar and the Docklands area. The service will also be available in Cork and Galway later this year.
