The telecommunications company signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the City of Cape Town on Tuesday to expand public hotspots in the metropole.
Cell C, the country’s third largest cellular service, was tasked to develop a plan for the City to expand WiFi. No timelines have been set for the project.
Outgoing Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille said the project should connect communities which have no access to the internet. The city has already installed more than 890km fibre optic cables and connected 300 city-owned buildings to WiFi.
Cell C CEO Jose Dos Santos said the company is always looking for opportunities to bring internet access to as many South Africans as possible.
