WITH free WiFi in Coffs Harbour's City Centre officially launched, Mayor Denise Knight explained anyone with portable access to the internet will benefit.

"The City Centre is now a virtual office," Cr Knight said.

"You can come down here during lunch or on your work break, sit outside and get a Vitamin D dose.

"The message is sit down and enjoy the CBD."

Users of laptops, iPads and smartphones can access the free WiFi by selecting the Switched On Coffs option that doesn't require a password to gain access to its use.
