GovWifi is a cross-government service that
provides wifi access in public sector buildings and is managed
centrally by the Cabinet Office
The Council intends to use GovWifi to meet a requirement to extend its guest wifi provision.
GovWifi offers a free authenticated user wifi
access service, that is provided by the Cabinet Office for use in
public sector buildings. This appears to meet our requirements at
no cost, using a centrally provided service.
Alternative options considered either had a
direct cost associated, or required further implementation effort.
These were rejected as zero cost solution provided centrally was
considered lower risk, and better value for money.
