For everyone :unsure:

These public Wi-Fi hotspots will be located in high-traffic areas where people spend a lot of time, like government buildings, bus stations, and hospitals.

I wonder whether it will be government hospitals? It is ad-powered in any case, an independent mesh will serve the public better with access to essential services which our cellular operators already do to some extent.

We have been rolling out Wi-Fi hotspots to townships across South Africa, etc.
Can PM me if anyone wants to know the details and advertise on these hotspots.

I hope they can give free WiFi at all libraries in S.A. This will attract more kids and adults to libraries to work on projects and assignments.
