Belfast is about to become a wireless city, promising surfing at the touch of a button in the park, bus or street.

BT engineers have completed the installation of wi-fi equipment in the city, following similar schemes in other UK cities.

When the technology is fully live, it will enable people to access high speed wireless broadband from a wide range of locations, the company said.

The move has been welcomed by Belfast City Council.
