TshWi-Fi has been a major success. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve the service and to roll out Free WiFi in new areas. But expanding means that we need to make sure that the service is sustainable for the long-term.
Our vision has always been to make sure that you, the user, never has to pay for the cost of using TshWi-Fi. So we’ll be introducing a new model for Free WiFi that ensures a sustainable service without you incurring any costs.
How Does The New Model Work?
The first thing you’ll need to do is register to use Free WiFi. You’ll only need to register ONCE on your device and after that you’ll just be able to click to connect. No personal information will be passed on and your privacy will be protected.
Also, there will be ads served during your TshWi-Fi browsing session. These will only be served as you move between different web pages and we’ll be making every effort to make sure these ads are as relevant as possible to you.
Why The Change?
We need to create a sustainable, long-term plan for Free WiFi. In order to do this we want to bring brands on board to be part of the incredible success story of Africa’s biggest public Free WiFi network. They’ll have a way to reach you, the user, and you won’t have to worry about ever losing access to Free WiFi.
The new TshWi-Fi is currently being rolled out in phases across Free Internet Zones in Tshwane
OK, Sounds Great. But I’ve Got Questions…
No problem. We understand that you might have questions about the system change. We want this to be a win-win situation, so if you have any queries or issues, please contact [email protected].
We are looking forward to expanding Free WiFi to the rest of the city and giving you more access to the jobs, education and socially inclusive content on the internet.
