Fitness fanatics ditch the gym in favour of Wi-Fi workouts

Across the country, Brits are turning their living rooms into their new exercise hot spot with almost 70% favouring alternative workout locations than more expensive gyms.

This growing trend of training at home is supported by a large number of free apps, online exercise videos and activity trackers that rely on fast, stable and reliable Wi-Fi connections to allow people to exercise in the comfort of their homes.

With 26% of 18 to 34 year olds admitting they have experienced frustration over exercise videos or apps freezing as a result of poor internet connection, residents in Dringhouses, Woodthorpe, Chapelfields, Foxwood, and parts of Holgate, are now able to stream workout videos seamlessly, and easily connect multiple devices all at the same time with York’s UFO.

The network is up to 20 times faster than the UK’s average fibre and is powerful enough to withstand all the usage you can throw at it, no matter how many devices are connected at once, allowing for the ultimate home workout experience without any disruptions. It will be available to 55,000 homes and businesses across the city once the project is completed.
