Free WiFi at South African Airports by the end of 2018
October 2018 - Before the end of the year, free WiFi will be available throughout the terminals at all of their nine South African airports says Airports Company South Africa (ACSA).
Mthoko Mncwabe, ACSA Chief Information Officer, announced this on Tuesday, 18th September when speaking at the Department of Tourism's Public Lecture at the Walter Sisulu University Mthatha Campus in the Eastern Cape.
To enhance the passenger experience at each of the company's airports, ACSA is launching a free WiFi service for passengers in the boarding areas of its nine airports.
How will the free Wi-Fi work?
Once users have connected to the network and completed the registration and verification process, they will enjoy:
- • 1GB/4 hours of free Wi-Fi at O.R. Tambo International Airport, Cape Town International Airport and King Shaka International Airport, or
- • 500MB/4 hours of free Wi-Fi at Bram Fischer International Airport; East London Airport; George Airport; Kimberley Airport; Port Elizabeth International Airport and Upington International Airport.
When the 4 hours have lapsed, or the data limit is reached, users will be invited to top-up the facility on a pay-as-you-go basis.
