Swindon Borough Council plan for all 186,000 citizens to have blanket “Wi-Fi mesh” coverage by April 2010.
Line rental will be free, and there will be no connection charge, say council officials.
Swindon Borough Council leader Rod Bluh said: "This is a truly ground-breaking partnership which will have real benefits for everyone living in Swindon.
Other UK cities have had trials of the schemes, but this is the first time an entire town area will be covered by council-backed public Wi-Fi.
