Free WiFi in the Western Cape


Free WiFi in the Western Cape

On 16 March 2016 the Western Cape government, in partnership with Neotel, launched the first 50 of 384 planned public access Wi-Fi hotspots. The second phase will see another 100 hotspots being rolled out during the 2016/17 financial year, with the remaining 234 hotspots to be deployed during the 2017/18 financial year.

To make use of this free service, all you need is a Wi-Fi enabled device within the coverage area. Each user receives 300 MB for the first month and 250 MB for every month thereafter.

The vast majority of the hotspots have been located at schools, due to the increasing need for schoolchildren to be able to access the internet.
