State-owned Botswana Fibre Network (BoFiNet) has unveiled a partnership with local ISP CENE Media which will allow CENE customers to gain access at BoFiNet’s network of Wi-Fi hotspots around the country.

BoFiNet unveiled the ‘Botswana Hotspot’ project in 2015, saying it planned to deploy Wi-Fi access points in locations such as airports, hospitals, major shopping malls and Gaborone’s central business district.

News portal Mmegi Online says any CENE Media customer who has a Turbo package for home or business will receive free bonus Wi-Fi at Botswana Hotspot locations. Wholesale provider BoFiNet was established in November 2012 to manage the network infrastructure assets that had been spun off from state-backed telco Botswana Telecommunications Corporation (BTC).
