US-based AT&T clinches a Wi-Fi roaming agreement with SA’s VAST Networks

VAST Networks, South Africa’s first open-access Wi-Fi Network, announced on Monday that it was working with AT&T, the Dallas-based telecommunications giant, to offer AT&T users Wi-Fi in the country.

In a historic alliance with South Africa’s first open-access Wi-Fi Network, AT&T customers with an eligible offer and the AT&T Passport app can now roam on VAST Networks Wi-Fi in any of their locations across the country.

VAST Networks aims to keep people connected at all times.

The network is South Africa’s most developed and seamless Wi-Fi ecosystem which offers an integrated “on-the-go” Wi-Fi experience.

VAST Networks locations include premium malls; hotels; central transport hubs, including major airports and railway nodes; hospitals and restaurants; and leisure and entertainment venues across South Africa.

“The opportunity to collaborate with AT&T and provide their users with a world class Wi-Fi experience at any of our 2000+ locations is a fantastic endorsement of the progress we are making. Visitors to South Africa will be able to work, play and stay connected to their world. We aim to keep users connected wherever they are on our network,” VAST Networks CEO, Grant Marais, said:

“We are looking forward to working with VAST Networks,” said Suzanne Hellwig-Navarro, AVP of Alliances and Partnerships at AT&T. “With their support and infrastructure, our customers will be able to stay connected.”
