The city announced on Tuesday that it had connected an additional 49 private buildings to high-speed fibre broadband. This is in addition to 290 government buildings already connected to high-speed fibre broadband in the city.

“It is part of the metro-wide R1.7bn roll-out of the municipal broadband network,” Carola Koblitz, communications manager for the Central City Improvement District (CCID) told Fin24 about the project.

“We’ve not been given the costs to the city of each individual building roll-out,” Koblitz told Fin24.
