Economic Development and Tourism Member of the Executive Council (MEC), Alan Winde, has announced that three of Western Cape’s poorest communities will benefit from a new R3 million broadband project to be completed by 2014.
The communities will receive free access to high-speed wireless Internet, which the MEC says should run at about one megabyte per second (the current entry-level for most paying users).
“It is our intention to reach as many residents as possible. The impact will be proposal-dependent,” states Winde.
