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.

Q. I can’t find CambWi-Fi on my device
You may be out of range of an CambWi-Fi access point. You can check a map and list of CambWi-Fi access points in your area on our maps.
Q. I’m trying to access a site, but it’s blocked
CambWi-Fi uses family friendly filters to provide the broadest range of content which is suitable for all our customers.
Q. Can I use CambWi-Fi to share personal information
You should only use trusted sites that are fully encrypted to send personal information. CambWi-Fi 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.
Q. I can connect but why is the service so slow?
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.
Q. I’ve connected but I keep getting messages telling me “page not available” or “page not found”
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
Q. I’m worried my device could be hacked or get a virus using CambWifi
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 CambWi-Fi.
