Following our success in ensuring that Hinckley was the first Town in Leicestershire to have a full Town Centre APP, Hinckley Business Improvement District (BID) is pleased to announce the launch of another first - a free-to-use public access Wi-Fi service throughout Hinckley Town Centre with integral marketing solutions.

It is an undeniable fact that over the past 5 years consumer habits have irreversibly changed, and that digital technology is now playing an even greater part in the way we shop and do business. In particular, the growth of the use of mobile technology continues to outstrip all other forms of marketing and communication. 6 out of 10 people (61%) in the UK now use a mobile device to access the internet, with trends showing that those numbers will certainly increase further.

The public access Wi-Fi being installed in Hinckley is a state-of-the-art solution provided by local IT specialists, Intalect. This service will provide free public on-line access throughout public spaces to all visitors within the core town centre area. Visitors can come into town in the knowledge they can access free Wi-Fi to allow them to access emails, social media and the internet - to do business or simply to keep in touch with one another.
