In celebration of the last days of summer, this edition of Out of Office is dedicated to Cape Town’s outdoor spaces with free public WiFi. Yep, that’s right. Free WiFi, outdoors! Since the Mother City is showing off with perfect weather this week, why not head outside to get some out of the office work done.

Thanks to The City of Cape Town, Iziko Museums, The Cape Town Partnership and WiFi specialists Connected Space, visitors to the Company Gardens have 100MB of free data each day.

 

Look for the signs close to Company’s Garden Restaurant, choose Company Gardens Wifi, and you’ll get a URL to log in. This service is for social media, e-mails and general surfing, but don’t expect high-speed downloads. Call 072 979 5056 if you’re having trouble.

Head to St Andrew’s Square, click on GreenPointCID- FreeWiFi, and you’re in. It’s really that simple. The WiFi is available throughout the square, but Truth Coffee at Prestwich Memorial has tables and delicious coffee, so grab a seat there.

There’s free WiFi at OZCF’s market on a Saturday from 9am – 2pm, sponsored by Vanilla Internet Services. Don’t come here to get serious work done though, the treats on offer are way too distracting! But grab a coffee, find a spot on the grass and soak up the last of the summer sun while you get some out of the office work done.
