The City of Johannesburg has launched free Wi-Fi access in Tladi Park in Soweto, promising that more parks will be activated in the Joburg region.
This follows its recent announcement that free Wi-Fi access is now available on the Braamfontein 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 plans to roll out 1,000 hotspots by Q4 2015, adding that as the planned phases come online it will also launch voice and video services to complement the data services.
The planned roll out phases will include Zandspriut, Diepsloot, Orange Farm, Ivory Park, Pennyville, Lenasia, and Ziberfontein.
