In a bid to bring in shoppers, Bexley Council has switched on its free wi-fi system.
Now people living, working or simply visiting the borough can start using the signal in many of the main town centres.
The authority said as part of a programme that will be rolled out over the next few months, it has switched on free public wi-fi in Erith, Welling, Sidcup and Crayford town centres.

Deputy leader and cabinet member for growth, Councillor Louie French, said the fact that shoppers and everyone else can be connected to the web simply and easily will be extremely attractive to many.
He said: "This is an important step forward for Bexley and is part of our strategy to improve digital connectivity so that the area is well placed to take advantage of future growth. By implementing this free to use wi-fi network we are giving local people what they need wherever they are - reliable internet on the go."
