South Africa: Stellenbosch first town to offer free Wi-Fi

Great news for all travellers coming to Stellenbosch, located about 50km east of Cape Town, and for all of the town's accommodation establishments. According to the Cape Argus (20 June 2012), the Stellenbosch municipality has, after already providing free wi-fi in the city centre, now also started to introduce free wi-fi to other parts of Stellenbosch, including Cloetesville, Idas Valley and Kayamandi. The farms of Stellenbosch will soon also become part of the so-called "internet connectivity project", which aims at positioning the university town as the "Silicon Valley of Africa".
The initiative is a joint operation between the Stellenbosch municipality, Stellenbosch University and Mxit, a popular South Afircan free instant messaging application.
