Signage, posters and other promotional materials are currently being prepared that will make it clear where the wi-fi service is available.
Full instructions to access free wifi will be provided via a number of different ways including this website. The service will be reliable as it's delivered over high speed fibre infrastructure. However priority will be given to clinical data.
