Cape Town - Wi-fi at the Company's Garden in Cape Town is up and running, though so far just over 100 people have taken advantage of the free service in a public space.The Cape Times reports that the service was launched 11 days ago and provides registered users with 100 megabytes free data a day, which can be accessed on wi-fi enabled smartphones and laptops. Signs directing visitors to the service were erected around the restaurant and aviary on Tuesday, garden manager Rory Phelan said to encourage people to tap in. The paper visited the garden to test the service on a laptop on Monday morning and found the registration process straightforward.An online speed test yielded an average download speed of 720kbps and an upload speed of 300kbps.To test further, a 10MB podcast was downloaded in about three minutes.Mayco member for community services and special projects, Belinda Walker, said on Monday the free wi-fi enabled people to work outside. Phelan said he hoped users would use the service to learn more about the history and plants in the garden, by accessing 33 QR or "quick reference" codes, on trees.The pilot project is set to spread to more public areas in the city.The service is available from 7am to 7pm. Data costs are being carried by Connected Space, while the Cape Town Partnership is covering administration costs.
