Premier Alan Winde says a lot of investment will be poured into the province’s internet and IT infrastructure in this financial year to give more Western Cape residents access to technology and online services.
Winde delivered his Department’s 2022/2023 budget in the Provincial Parliament yesterday and said millions of residents access online services and facilities on a daily basis for their educational and other needs.
He says the fact that millions of people worked from home during the Covid-19 lockdown shows the importance of having a stable and capable internet infrastructure.
