Govroam: free Wi-Fi for the public sector

Govroam allows guests to connect to a special network in Sheffield City Council buildings and countless others around the UK. 

These buildings will be owned by other central or local government departments, including the NHS.

It is available for any guests who work for Govroam enabled organisations. This includes the NHS, universities, and other local councils.

It is faster than guest Wi-Fi networks and mobile broadbands. It is also more reliable.
