Free Wi-Fi for 1500 taxis within Six Months

The taxi council Santaco has announced free Wi-Fi for taxi commuters with 50MB per month limit. Within three years, more than 90 percent of taxis will be Wi-Fi enabled, as per the decision taken by taxi council.

Connectivity is important and as many users switch to smartphones, the decision to offer Wi-Fi for commuters has been welcomed by everyone.

South African National Taxi Council launched WiTaxi at an event in Soweto. The service will be provided by Telkom. The data transfers will be powered by 3G and 4G networks and commuters can expect fast service.

During the first phase of testing, the service will be launched for 1,500 taxis. In the next phase, every month 4,000 to 5,000 Wi-Fi access points will be added.
