Wi-Fi Hot Spots and Free Wireless Internet in Cape Town
Capetonians can now enjoy free wireless internet at Greenmarket Square
Capetonians can now enjoy free wireless internet at South Africa’s oldest public space, Greenmarket Square. Locals and visitors will have access to 10MB’s of free internet daily until the end of August 2010 thanks to a collaboration between Cape Town Partnership and Skyrove Wi-Fi hot spot provider.
The free wireless internet will be a welcome addition to Greenmarket Square’s new R18 million upgrade which includes the installation of CCTV cameras and pedestrian lights; new bollards, benches and signs, as well as new paving and pebbles.
“The influx of visitors to popular tourist locations during the 2010 World Cup will be significant and we wanted to ensure that we could accommodate even the most tech-savvy soccer revellers and possibly enhance the attractiveness of the precinct”, says Henk Kleynhans, CEO of Skyrove.
“As we constantly strive to make Cape Town a valuable resource for both cultural and creative inspiration, Skyrove’s proposition has assisted us to strengthen our positioning as a creative hub,” says Cape Town Partnership Senior Project Manager Terri Carter. She continues, “We hope to roll out similar projects around the city very soon”.
