MyCiTi, the high-quality bus-based transit system in Cape Town, has launched a pilot phase of free WiFi provision on 10 of its buses. The new service provides each passenger with 50MB of data free every day from any WiFi enabled device (smartphone, tablet, laptop) as well as with free value-added content, such as news, weather and other multimedia, over and above the daily 50MB data limit. Once the daily cap is reached, passengers can purchase additional data using a credit card. Users who have an existing internet account at home that includes access to public WiFi hotspots, such as AlwaysOn, G-Connect and MWEB, can simply log in for internet access.
All 10 MyCiTi buses equipped with the new WiFi service have "WiFi available here" signs. If you want to use the free WiFi service, enable WiFi on your device, connect to "Vast", and choose "Complimentary Access". You will be required to complete a short registration form the first time you access the WiFi.
