Cape Town is one of the most advanced smart cities in Africa with cutting edge technology being implemented with thoughtful planning designed for the people to improve their lives and attract business to the city.
To obtain the smart city status the city’s government setup a four-pillar project focusing on digital infrastructure, digital inclusion, e-government and digital economy.
Cape Town’s investment in its digital infrastructure project includes closed-circuit television with 560 cameras located throughout the city.
Public Wi-Fi is now widely available with the target to reach one wifi hotspot in each of the province’s 384 municipal wards by 2018. This is being supported by rapid growth of fibre optic infrastructure for high-speed broadband.
The Smart grid with remote utilities meter reading is helping to reduce water usage and energy consumption, making a collective effort to sustain power accessibility.
