As free wifi as launched in Framlingham this weekend, we ask whether other Suffolk towns would benefit from similar digital capabilities.

For the next three months Framlingham will be the pilot for a new scheme called 'Digital Town'.

It aims to help economic development in the town by providing wifi for visitors and businesses in the centre of the town.

Nick Khan, ESC's strategic director, said previously:"The concept is a simple one, take a small rural town in the heart of east Suffolk and explore what is possible in terms of using digital and other technology to help the town and its communities thrive.

"We will see what works, what doesn't and use that learning and evidence to expand the concept across the whole of East Suffolk."
