Shoppers and workers in the Market Place can now access free wifi as part of the town centre's ongoing redevelopment.
The wifi is available for free and can be found on mobile devices under the name “Gt Yarmouth Free Wi-Fi” within the Market Place area.
A booster will be fitted to extend the signal underneath the market canopy.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council has launched the new service.
Council leader Carl Smith said: “This great free wi-fi is part of our wider work to enhance the experience of visiting the town centre and the market, supporting our improvement of the market facilities themselves and our wider aspirations to enhance digital connectivity.”
