South Africa’s network provider Cell C has collaborated with Facebook to launch the first public Wi-Fi hotspots.
Supported by the Facebook Express Wi-Fi platforM, the hotspots will help Cell C bring fast, affordable and reliable internet access to the South African public, African media reports.
“As an innovative business, Cell C is continuously looking for ways to bring affordable, super-fast Internet access to South Africans. This partnership with Facebook is an ideal way to ensure that we live up to that commitment,” Cell C Chief Executive Douglas Craigie Stevenson said.
UWC said it strives to enhance the Student Experience on campus so that it can attract the best and brightest minds to its institution, which made it the perfect place to launch this service.
Rollout across the City of Cape Town will provide access to anyone within the public Wi-Fi areas. More areas will be announced once the City’s municipality has approved additional rollout areas.
This follows the Memorandum of Understanding which was signed between Cell C and the City in 2018.
