South Africa: Wi-Fi for Cape Town townships | News24

South Africa: Wi-Fi for Cape Town townships | News24 | South Africa Business | Scoop.it

The City of Cape Town is currently conducting a feasibility study to make Wi-Fi internet available in Khayelitsha and Mitchell's Plain.

According to Zak Mbhele, spokesperson for premier Helen Zille, the wireless mesh network is planned to be established by the end of 2014.

"Khayelitsha and Mitchell's Plain have been identified as 'gap areas' when it comes to internet access and broadband penetration.

"The Western Cape Government wants to narrow the 'digital divide' so that people in poor communities also have equitable access to the opportunities that come from being connected to modern information systems."

Mbhele said because no wireless mesh model of this scale exists in South Africa, it was felt that a pilot project was first needed before considering further rollout into other communities.

womo.co.za's insight:

womo.co.za  was founded on three basic concepts:

 

1.  Word-of-mouth is considered a highly credible source of information.

2.  Local businesses can benefit from a low cost, high yeild online advertising medium.

3.  Accurate and constructive reviews will help provide a better consumer experience.

 

We hate wasting time, as most people do.  Our goal is to connect customers with businesses as quickly and efficiently as possible.  We want to make it easy for customers to select the best products & services in their local areas.

 

We have created a space where you can honestly comment on your experiences, creating a dialogue with businesses that will ultimately provide a better consumer experience.

 

Through our highly efficient business category framework and internal search engine, we put your business in front of customers – at a time when they are looking for exactly what they need.

 

Once a customer locates your business on the site it’s up to you to showcase your products & services, giving them a reason to select you.

 

We have four business membership options, with each one progressively adding more exposure and functionality to your womo profile. 

 

We have also invested heavily in a sophisticated advertising portal.  With this portal we can work with you to determine the ideal location for you to invest in womo advertising.  And with real time impression statistics we can provide you with instant feedback & analysis on how your advertisement has performed within the site.

 

While we have centered the site around customer reviews, we realize that not every business may wish to participate in this valuable exchange.  Included with all paying business membership options is the ability to turn the customer review function on or off.  

 

In regards to customer reviews, we moderate this process very carefully to ensure all reviews are written with good intentions at heart.  This is not to say that we don’t allow negative reviews to be posted.  We actually believe that great value lies in both negative and positive reviews of your business.  With every review you receive (Positive, negative, or somewhere in the middle) your business will have an opportunity to respond accordingly. 

 

We hope you will visit womo.co.za and benefit from using and contributing to this exchange between business and consumer.
