Godiva Festival Wi-Fi to be sponsored by CityFibre

Published: Thursday, 04 July 2019


For the second year running, visitors to Godiva Festival will be able to access free Wi-Fi. This free Wi-Fi network will be sponsored by CityFibre.

As part of their national Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) project, CityFibre have been working towards transforming Coventry into one of the world’s most digitally connected cities.

To mark the progress that’s been made with the project, they will be sponsoring the Wi-Fi at this year’s festival.

Using this Wi-Fi network is easy. Visitors just search for Godiva Free Wi-fi on their phone and connect using an e-mail address or their Facebook account. Visitors will only need to register once and can re-connect to the service as many times as they like during the festival. So, visitors to the festival will be able to share videos and photos without eating into their data.

Councillor Richard Brown, Coventry City Council’s Digital Champion, said: “It’s great to have CityFibre on board as part of the festival family through their sponsorship of the public Wi-Fi at the event. We know thousands of people will be hooking into the free site Wi-Fi to share pictures and access information about the festival, so I’m sure the service will prove very popular over the duration of the festival.”

Leigh Hunt, CityFibre’s City Manager for Coventry said “The Godiva Festival is a key cultural highlight of Coventry’s annual events calendar and is widely regarded as one of the biggest and best family festivals in the UK. CityFibre are proud to play our part in this year’s event as an official Wi-Fi sponsor: there really is no better way to celebrate the progress we’ve made over the last six months on bringing reliable, high capacity, gigabit-capable broadband within reach of nearly every home and business in Coventry by 2022.”

Visitors to the festival should use #godivafestival to get involved.

Godiva Festival is brought to you by Coventry City Council, in association with Free Radio and Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 and is supported by Coventry College and BBC Coventry and Warwickshire.
