Free high speed wifi is coming to a number of town centres across Bexley borough.

The service is not funded by Bexley Council but Ontix Ltd. So far it’s live in Erith, Welling, Sidcup and Crayford.

Sidcup

Following in coming weeks will be Bexleyheath and Bexley Village.

Bexley will follow

This story is interesting as it once again reveals how many people on social media read headline without ever reading the content. Many are complaining about Bexley Council funding this in a time of cuts – when they aren’t.



The same was said about crossing painted in Greenwich borough in recent months – when they were funded by sponsorship and not taxpayers.

However some have raised concerns about what happens with people’s data when signing up for the service. According to Bexley Council: “The network requires a one-time only registration and allows users to experience high bandwidth services free from advertisements.”
