Western Cape MEC of Economic Opportunities Alan Winde launched the free wireless internet in George which will connect about 20 000 residents. 

MEC Winde said the project would foster economic growth in the region.  He added that the free WiFi project is assisting the provincial government in developing the most effective way of delivering internet access to residents. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Bronwynne Jooste said I hope residents and business will be able to use this to further their education, digital literacy and to promote local tourism, the high cost of data has prevented many residents from accessing the internet. It costs between R15 and R25 per hour to browse at internet cafés.

“The project would foster economic growth in the region.The Free Wi-Fi project is assisting us in developing the most effective way of delivering internet access to residents Jooste added.
