Atlantis and Robertson? Mkay... Introduce free Wi-Fi to people who haven't heard of internet before.
Ill just say they need to add a couple of sites:
.Besides allowing users 250MB per day of free browsing, a specialised content portal, “Tobetsa”, allows unlimited browsing of government online services, as well as educational and job-*searching resources such as Wikipedia, Siyavula, and Gumtree
Very good, keep it up W-Cape Gov!
An example of how government should invest in infrastructure and basic services. In this instance it now opens the opportunity for NGO's and donors to put computers in schools and not worry about how to get the data there.
Important to note that it is good start, though. Let's hope it runs properly in a year's time.
The City of Tshwane, in partnership with the free Wi-Fi crusade Project Isizwe, has launched more than 200 new free internet zones. Centered at schools in the Tshwane area, this move sees the city become one of largest free Wi-Fi providers in South Africa.
The move follows Phase 1 of the non-profit, Project Isizwe, which last year in November rolled out free internet zones to Soshanguve, Hatfield, Church Square, Tshwane North College and Mamelodi Community Centre.
Besides allowing users 250Mb per day of free browsing, a specialised content portal, Tobetsa, is available for unlimited access and designed to give free WiFi users the opportunity to make the most of what the internet has to offer.
Users have free, unlimited access to sites like Wikipedia, Gumtree Job Search, education portal Siyavula, mobile reading site FundZA, as well as news sites such as eNCA and CNBC Africa.
“This unprecedented intervention will juxtapose Tshwane as an e-Capital of excellence and a driver of education in the country aligned to the creation of a Smart City and a knowledge economy,” Tshwane Executive Mayor, Cllr. Kgosientso Ramokgopa said.
Wouldn't really call Robertson a suburb of Cape Town though.
