Ogi, Wales’s homegrown internet company, have teamed up with Monmouthshire County Council and the Welsh Government to bring Gigabit-capable fibre connectivity to this year’s Abergavenny Food Festival.
Returning for another year as headline sponsor of ‘The Dome at the Castle’, Ogi is also providing free public wifi to visitors and dedicated connectivity for traders and exhibitors at the event.
The festival, set up to transform the way people think about food, has become a key date in the diary for many over recent years – attracting more than 30,000 visitors and employing over 120 local young people over the weekend.
This year Ogi will also leave a legacy, having installed a public wifi network in the iconic town’s Market Hall.
Head of Brand and Engagement, Sarah Vining, said: “Having nearly completed our infrastructure build in Abergavenny, it’s a real treat to be back supporting the food festival and – by installing a new public wifi network in the Market Hall – leaving lasting connectivity in the town.
“We’ve spent a lot of time in Abergavenny as team Ogi over the last two years, so supporting events like the Food Festival help us give back to communities that have been patient with us as we bring ultrafast, future-ready speeds to streets, cul-de-sacs and public spaces across the area.”
The Abergavenny Food Festival runs from the 17-18 September across the town. For more information and to buy tickets, visit www.abergavennyfoodfestival.com.
Ogi would like to say a big ‘diolch’ to Monmouthshire County Council, Welsh Government, Welsh Telecom, Openreach, the Abergavenny Market Hall, St Mary’s Priory and, of course, the Food Festival organisers, for their support.
