The City of Cape Town has rolled out 275 public Wi-Fi zones, clustered in more than 120 city-wide locations where members of the public congregate and queue for services. The provision of this free service shows that the City is committed to building a digitally inclusive city.
The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Corporate Services and Compliance, Councillor Xanthea Limberg, today 11 July 2016 unveiled three more free Wi-Fi zones in the Cape Town Central Business District (CBD). The three newest zones are situated at the Gallows Hill Traffic Department, at the City Hall and in the Civic Centre.

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.

About 60 more Wi-Fi zones are on the cards for the new financial year (2016/17) to be rolled out by June 2017.
