What councils ask us

How does BT fund Street Hubs?

Deployment and maintenance of Street Hubs is funded by revenue from advertising on the digital displays. There’s no cost to the taxpayer, national or local.

What happened to the InLink from BT?

BT acquired the digital street unit assets from InLink Limited in December 2019.

Is the wi-fi filtered?

Our wi-fi experience is designed to be consistent with the content filters used by UK internet service providers (ISPs) to ensure safety and child protection while using wi-fi in a public space.

Do Street Hubs have sensors?

Not as standard, but they can be added to capture data such as air and noise pollution, outdoor temperature and eventually traffic conditions. This could be used for new smart services for local councils and communities based on the Internet of Things.

Who owns this fibre network?

Street Hub is owned and managed by BT.

How often is Street Hub’s hardware updated?

Technology changes in the blink of an eye, so Street Hubs are custom-built to keep up with the latest technologies and user experience trends with a modular design and updates through the network.
