The South African National Taxi Council (SANTACO) has announced that it will be providing free wi-fi to commuters in taxis and around taxi ranks.
According to reports, while the project has been spearheaded by the taxi association, it is being implemented through a collaboration between Telkom.
Telkom will be providing the connections and Wi-Taxi South Africa will be responsible for the infrastructure.
Meanwhile, SANTACO chief executive officer, Nkululeko Buthelezi, says that taxis will not increase their fares, and that the wi-fi was simply a ‘value-add’ included in the normal fee.
