The Western Cape government, in partnership with Neotel, is launching 50 public Wi-Fi hotspots in March.

The hotspots are the first batch of 384 hotspots planned for the province, which are due to be completed by 2019.

“We are the only province focused on bringing connectivity to rural areas, with a hotspot in every single ward no matter where you are,” said the Western Cape government.

“There will be 300MB per month of free browsing available to users on their first connection, and thereafter 250MB per month.”

“A specialised content portal has been devised which allows unlimited browsing of government websites, as well as a digital literacy course.”

Users of the Wi-Fi hotspots will also be able to top up at R5 a day for up to 700MB.
