When restaurants like KFC and MacDonald’s introduced free WiFi in South Africa for kids like me who dont have a rooter and are always on apps like tumblr, apps that consume a lot of data it helped out alot. I’m from a township in Limpopo restaurants that had free WiFi were about 24 km away this meant i had to travel then buy a meal that cost About R100 or more and if you think about it to spend that much amount including transport costs just to use free WiFi it’s an absolutely ridiculous idea. I then relocated to Gauteng after my senior year(matric) and here when I’m in the city either it be Pretoria or Johannesburg free WiFi is abundant just that most of them are daily limited to 250mb or less this means if i want to access unlimited WiFi  i have to go to restaurants like Piatto, these restaurants don’t come cheap so if i have no money(which is most of the time)  i usually stand outside or within range of the WiFi signal but nonetheless unlimited or limited at least i get to feed my brain with new information daily for free also this post your reading it was shared via free WiFi from KFC…i spent R7.90 on ice cream though so i guess in a sense it was not free.
