Wi-Fi links rural areas to the world

Pupils and communities in and around Tyeni village in Tsolo will now enjoy access to free Wi-Fi thanks to a broadband connectivity project.

The project was launched by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa at Reuben Ntuli High School in Tyeni on Friday, bringing with it a technological revolution to rural areas and ensuring pupils and youth have free access to educational websites and general information on bursaries and job opportunities.

“The introduction of broadband and Wi-Fi to this rural place is going to change the lives of these learners,” said Ramaphosa.

“This project is of great significance not only for the people of Mhlontlo, but for the country as a whole. It marks a milestone in our effort to ensure access to both urban and rural to broadband internet and information technology.”
