Trinity Market gets more connected with free, high-speed public Wi-Fi

Public Wi-Fi has recently been installed to all areas of the Trinity Market in Hull city centre.

This means shoppers at the market as well as traders can take advantage of free and secure internet access.

Local telecommunications company Connexin was procured to install the scheme to provide a high-speed public Wi-Fi connection to all users of Trinity Market.

Access to Wi-Fi is available to market users now.

The Wi-Fi offers a safe connection, with a system that continuously scans and protects users against security threats. It also has built-in content filtering to ensure any explicit and harmful content is blocked.

The new Wi-Fi access will enable Hull’s Trinity Market to continue providing a vibrant and welcoming destination for people to eat, drink, shop, socialise and work. The availability of good quality, high speed internet access will ensure users of Trinity Market can stay connected. Whether visitors are using social media, browsing the latest news, or catching up on some work as they enjoy some of the amazing food and drink available in the market, the free public Wi-Fi provision will make this much easier.

Access to Wi-Fi will also be a huge benefit to traders, helping them in the running of their businesses and keeping them in contact with their customers.

The Trinity Market was first opened in 1904, primarily selling fruit and vegetables. Trinity Market underwent a multi-million pound investment in 2017 before the new-look market was unveiled in 2018. The refurbishment not only improved facilities and the space for existing businesses, but also enticed new traders to the market which resulted in the diverse community that the market has today. The refurbishment meant the market could also host events, which it does regularly.

Accessing the free public Wi-Fi is quick and simple. Traders and visitors to the market just need to find Connexin amongst the available networks on their device and then click to connect.

Councillor Paul Drake-Davis, the portfolio holder for regeneration, said: “There’s a range of benefits to making Hull a more ‘connected city’. I know being able to digitally connect to their customers is vitally important for today’s small businesses, and I know customers like to stay connected when they visit the market. I’m pleased we have been able to bring free public Wi-Fi to the market, which is an important hub of activity in our city centre.”
