Western Cape Gov in partnership with the City to launch Digital Access Centre

We closed off with Alan Winde – MEC of Finance, Economic Development and Tourism. On the 22nd of April 2014 the Western Cape government, in partnership with the City of Cape Town announced that R2.8 million Digital Access Centre is set to be launched in Elsies River. The Interactive Community Access Network (ICAN) Centre forms part of the roll out of the Western Cape Government's R1.3 billion broadband plan to connect communities across the province over the next three years. Residents will have access to Wi-Fi hotspots, meeting rooms, video-conference facilities, training workshops, study rooms and sound-proof recording booths. The initiative builds on the success of the City of Cape Town’s broadband initiative in which R222 million has been set aside over three years towards the roll out of broadband infrastructure throughout the Metro.
