Cape Flats to get free Wi-Fi from Google
Google has launched a station to provide free WiFi services in the Cape Flats.
Residents in several areas including Elsies River, Delft and Khayelitsha will be able to access the internet.
The service will also be available in more than 100 other locations like shopping malls and universities courtesy of the Think WiFi partnership.
Refilwe Moloto speaks to Google South Africa head of communications Michelle Atagana about the initiative.
