Anc government trying to take credit for everything except when there is a failure by their people. eg: 1. sanrail evicting those people 2. when the police are involved in killings 3. textbooks are not delivered
actually I am being stupid. There is already ground level infrastructure so you can run some fibre down and connect up a few cell transmitters. Internet connectivity on a feature phone very much counts as internet connectivity. Of course you will have to do an EIA before installing the transmitters in the shaft and make sure that there aren't any complaints from the residents - You know how dangerous cell masts are and so the mine workers must be protected from the evil harm caused
*yes I am being very facetious and there are many reasons why cellphone reception in a mineshaft is not the best thing since sliced bread
Internet and broadband connectivity are two distinct things. I don't expect the bush school to teach the difference though. Providing broadband for all over cellular is simply not possible so they'll have to nationalise Telkom to achieve the goal.
