Leading international telecommunications operator Orange has announced plans to
launch a new Wi-Fi service in Khayelitsha and Mitchell’s Plain in Cape Town, South
Africa. The project, which aims to advance communities that have had limited access
to internet in South Africa, is part of a long-term initiative to expand Orange as a new
nationwide internet service provider in the country.
According to IT News Africa, Sebastien Crozier, CEO of Orange Horizons, explains,
“The first phase of the project will offer free Wi-Fi to anyone making use of a Wi-Fi
enabled device. Users will get a free bundle per day to use as they please. In the
second phase of the project we will offer some paying offers along with free Wi-Fi.
“Orange is both excited and proud to be working with the City of Cape Town on this
project. It is very important to us, as our brand is well known for having a strong CSR
component, and these types of projects are very much in line with our vision of a
world where internet access is available to all.’
