Free Wi-Fi has come to residents of Gauteng’s East Rand.


Free Wi-Fi has come to residents of Gauteng’s East Rand as the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality starts rolling out the early stages of its connectivity programme at public facilities.

Residents wanting to use the Wi-Fi can choose “Ekurhuleni Free Wi-Fi” network on a smartphone and are allowed a daily cap of 250MB.

The Wi-Fi roll-out is coming to public facilities like clinics and libraries in areas such as Benoni, Boksburg, Brakpan and Springs. Officials said the network is robust and high-speed.

“From a speed point of view we don’t put on a cap. They get a capacity of 250MB daily at unlimited speed,” Lydia Ntlhophi, divisional head of ICT business relations management in the metro told Fin24.

She said that at the launch event, 650 people connected to the Wi-Fi network at the same time and experienced a speed of 125mbps.
