A community surrounded by Cape Town’s largest communities, Bishop Lavis runs rife with gangsterism, poverty, unemployment, and crime. These conditions make it one of the most marginalized communities in the city. These inferior conditions in the community impact heavily on the quality of life of the residents. TooMuchWifi believes everyone needs internet access, no matter the state of the community.
Due to the harsh conditions of the community, a heavy burden is placed on the community. Bishop Lavis residents are unable to receive fibre because of the extortion from gangsters, and alternative options are too expensive. Children cannot do proper research for school, businesses are hindered, even updates for smartphones and security systems are affected! Upcoming technology students are limited by data restrictions, businesses are unable to operate effectively, and internet cafes are a missed opportunity.
“Having internet in our area will make a huge difference for our kids education. They are getting their homework via teams which needs fast internet.
