The City of Johannesburg recently published a list of its free Wi-Fi hotspot locations, reiterating its plan to roll out 1,000 hotspots in the Joburg area by the end of 2015.

Earlier this month, it announced it had launched a new Wi-Fi hotspot in Tladi Park, Soweto, following its previous announcement that Braamfontein is fully covered with a wireless mesh – with citizens able to use 300MB per day.

Over half of all libraries and clinics across Joburg’s seven regions are now consuming free Wi-Fi provided by the municipality. Joburg said it will also launch voice and video services to complement the data services.

The planned roll-out areas will include Zandspriut, Diepsloot, Orange Farm, Ivory Park, Pennyville, Lenasia, and Ziberfontein.

Joburg’s active free Wi-Fi hotspot locations are detailed in the table below.
