The new City Corporation free to use Gigabit WiFi network, operated by O2 and CTIL, offers City workers, residents and visitors individual user speeds of up to 100 megabits per second across the Square Mile.

Walbrook Ward benefits directly from nine access points with many others also in the eight surrounding wards.

Two of these locations in the Ward are on Cannon Street (one at the junction with Walbrook and one at the junction with St Swithin’s Lane); three are close to Bank junction and two are on Lothbury, near Moorgate and near Bartholomew Lane. The final two are on Old Broad Street, one at the junction with Threadneedle Street and one adjacent to the Throgmorton Street intersection.

CTIL has also commenced the building of over 400 4G mobile “small cells”, which will provide enhanced mobile coverage at street level, eradicating any mobile network black spots. The small cells will be deployed by March 2019 and will be the first deployment of its kind to date in the UK, ensuring that the City is best placed to become an early adopter of 5G which is widely expected to become available in 2020.
