Orange Horizons offers Wi-Fi to South African tourism co

Friday 4 April 2014 | 13:29 CET | News
Orange Horizons has launched the research and testing stage for its Wi-Fi service in South Africa. It has tied up with Cape Town-based African Eagle Tourism to provide free Wi-Fi within its fleet of vehicles. Orange Horizon CEO Sebastien Crozier said for tourists visiting South Africa, it is hard to understand why there is so little access to Wi-Fi. Crozier said that Orange wants to change the way that South African operators and customers look at Wi-Fi and data, and that this could bode well for tourism in the country.
