Superfast broadband

The independent ThinkBroadband website reports that Watford benefits from 99.9% superfast and fibre coverage.

Free WiFi

Watford Borough Council in partnership with intechnologyWiFi has installed a free WiFi network in central Watford. To date over 150,000 users have registered to use the service. Visit for more information and details on how to connect to the service.

Low power wide area network

Watford Borough Council in partnership with Digital Catapult has installed a LoRaWAN low power wide area network across the borough. Following a successful digital innovation competition in 2018, Watford Borough Council is running two technology pilots on the network to more accurately count and monitor footfall across the borough and identify available car parking spaces.

The council is open to businesses using the LoRaWAN network to deliver innovative services to the public and private sector and encourages interested businesses to make contact.
