It’s certainly an unknown fact about Edinburgh but the Scottish capital is a hyper-connected city! For the last 7 years, the city of Edinburgh has invested a lot into free, public-access, Wi-Fi in the city centre. This year, the main objective is to cover all the streets in the city centre in time for the festival in August. The city has already created a number of free Wi-fi points and today, more than 80 venues offer free access to Wi-fi. Your next question will be, “but where exactly will I be able to find it?” You can see below a list of the places where you can connect your smartphone or laptop to the internet:

  • On the bus or tram
  • Cafés and restaurants
  • Government and public buildings

You can find all the free Wi-fi points displayed on Google Maps here.
