CPUT students and staff members now have access to high-speed internet at 57 public libraries in the City of Cape Town.

The City and the Tertiary Education and Research Network of South Africa (TENET) recently turned on the eduroam WiFi service in these libraries and students and staff from any university which uses eduroam can now work at the libraries as though they were on their own campus.

“Initiatives like this one are particularly important in South Africa where students who are least able to afford internet access are often the furthest away from our universities. These students enjoy world-class access when on campus but may be unable to read email or access learning resources while at home,” said TENET CEO, Duncan Greaves.
TENET hopes that other cities will soon follow suit.

  • eduroam is available at 30 universities and research institutes in South Africa and at universities in over 101 countries worldwide.
