About free High Street Wi-Fi

To help keep business and communities connected, free Wi-Fi is now available on the high streets of our market towns, St Ives, St Neots, Ramsey and Huntingdon.

We have worked in partnership with Connecting Cambridgeshire who have offered a secure public access Wi-Fi network. The network is provided by Cambridgeshire County Council using funding from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority and is supported by Huntingdonshire District Council.

How to access free High Street Wi-Fi

You can register for CambWifi in 3 easy steps:

  1. Find CambWifi_Public in your Wi-Fi settings and connect
  2. Read and accept the Terms
  3. Click the ‘Log In’ button

You’ll now be automatically connected whenever you’re in a CambWifi location.

Please note that the login process will need to be completed every six months.

You may be out of range of an CambWifi access point. You can check a map and list of CambWi-Fi access points in your area on the Connecting Cambridgeshire website.

CambWifi uses family friendly filters to provide the broadest range of content which is suitable for all our customers. 

You should only use trusted sites that are fully encrypted to send personal information. CambWifi is a public access network and is therefore not as secure as a private network. If you are in any doubt about the safety of your personal information don’t share it.

Public access Wi-Fi is just that and although we do try to provide a high capacity network, there may be times when you are in a crowded area and a lot of people are using it. Depending on your device your experience of the service may vary.

What does this mean?

  • You may be out of range of the hotspot

  • You may have misspelt the web address

  • The web page may contain blocked content 

  • There may be a network fault in that location, use the maps above to find another hotspot

Unfortunately, this can happen with any connection whether it’s public or not. Most online risks are spread by malware within certain pages. Some steps you can take to protect yourself include:

  • making sure your security software is up-to-date

  • checking your security settings and anti-virus software on your device before you start using CambWifi.
