City of Cape Town announces eduroam in public libraries

Patricia de Lille tweets of an agreement between the City and CHEC

TENET welcomes the announcement​ by Patricia de Lille that CHEC and the City of Cape Town have agreed to make eduroam available on the City's network and in the City's libraries. We look forward to helping make this a reality.

This announcement promises a substantial increase in the number of locations in Cape Town where students can gain access to eduroam. While all eduroam users will benefit, it is particularly important for students from Western Cape institutions, who will now have access closer to home. This is an important step in bridging the digital divide.

eduroam is a secure wireless roaming network for the academic and research community. Students and academics everywhere #love2eduroam.
