Preston’s main museum and library has a new free WiFi connection.Advertisement
The public WiFi has been turned on at the Harris and it extends out into the Flag Market and surrounding roads.
Tackling the issue means the Harris Museum and Art Gallery’s biggest source of customer complaints has been solved.
Costing more than £35,000 the new equipment has been installed.
So I can confirm the Harris now has wifi throughout the building and outside @lep @blogpreston

Preston City Council’s cabinet signed off the proposals in November last year.
A statement from the council at the time said: “In summary, the implementation of building WiFi will enhance the Harris offering now making it more attractive to visitors and potentially encouraging more corporate or private rental of gallery spaces to increase revenue.”
