The government said Wi-Fi will be available in all courts by October 2015, ahead of its original target date of March 2016.

The Ministry of Justice says the accelerated timetable puts the government ”in a good position” to get all criminal courts working digitally by July 2016.

Wi-Fi availability will allow, among other things, defendants to appear in court via prison-to-court video links for pre-trial hearings, prosecutors and defence lawyers to present cases from mobile phones; and submissions to be stored centrally and made accessible through digital devices, using Wi-Fi connections.
