Introducing Kwanokuthula to Fibre

The process to install Fibre optic cables in Kwanokuthula has started in earnest from Monday 19 October 2020.  NEOTEL deploys the infrastructure and this will connect public facilities within the community. The facilities to be connected in this project includes health centers, libraries and other public offices and centres. In the medium to long term, households will also benefit from the project.

This project is part of the Western Cape Governments vision to “Create Connected Communities” throughout the province. This is part of making information accessible to all citizens in the province.

Cllr. Mphakamisi Mbali, Councillor for Ward 5, could not contain his excitement at the roll out of this project. Cllr Mbali said that the Bitou Municipality is proud to see this project being rolled out and cannot wait to see all the Wards in Bitou benefitting from it.

According to Cllr Mbali, the Fourth Industrial Revolution that we are currently in, demands from municipalities to adopt new digitalized methods of information sharing. Therefore, it is imperative that communities be equipped with infrastructure and resources to ensure that they are able to have access to digitalized information.

The project have also created some employment opportunities within the community. It is another positive factor because the impact of Covid-19 has resulted in many job losses.
