The UK's best Wi-Fi

A recent survey by Wi-Fi provider Devicescape revealed the best sources of available Wi-Fi on the UK high street. Greggs and Marks and Spencer topped the chart for the best quality free Wi-Fi. When ease of use was taken into account too, Boots and Asda took the crown, whereas the best high-street bank Wi-Fi came courtesy of NatWest. Surprisingly, shops and food-on-the-go retailers, like Greggs, provided a better offering than many of the coffee shops that we traditionally think of as the home of free Wi-Fi. It’s worth noting that the report found out of the 40 brands tested, all provided a good standard of free wireless connectivity. “The real takeaway here is not that Greggs has better Wi-Fi than the next brand, but that the quality of high street Wi-Fi in the UK is really very good across the board,” said Mike Hibberd, director of marketing at Devicescape. “At the very least the connectivity offered by the brands we’ve listed, and many more we have not, is good enough to stream video to a smartphone.”
