‘The WiFi Guys’ is a WISP (Wireless Internet Service Provider) business that supplies high speed Internet using a wireless connection, which is normally broadcast from a tower (or other high sites).
Founded in late 2019, Guy Senekal residing in Port Elizabeth and Marco Swarts from Cape Town saw the need for affordable internet in mainly the Northern areas of Port Elizabeth.
After extensive research and engaging with residents in many communities it was discovered that there was a big demand for reliable and affordable internet.
‘The WiFi Guys’ project officially started in the beginning of 2020. The main infrastructure was built and Access Points were erected in high Site areas. Unfortunately, soon after the covid pandemic struck but this did not stop the project it only slowed down the process.
Phase one was establishing a stable WiFi network and infrastructure for Port Elizabeth. This will of course be an ever-ongoing project as equipment and networking are always being upgraded and improved.
Phase two is an all-new super-fast wireless system with fibre like speeds that has been in development for a while but has only recently come to light. Air-Fibre is an innovative product that overcomes distance and a lack of infrastructure in urban, township, and rural communities to bring fibre-quality connectivity to more households. It will bring high-speed, inexpensive, and uncapped broadband to areas in which traditional fibre installations are not available. A big benefit is the simple installation process. There’s no drawn-out order and installation process – all it takes is a small wireless receiver installed at your home or office. Air Fibre will be made available in areas where customers register their demand for the service.
If you do not have fibre where you live, you should register your interest in Wireless Internet or Air-Fibre now.
We have many areas to still cover and the processes are extremely challenging but the love for the business and dealing with the incredible people of Port Elizabeth is all the motivation we need to make our business a success.

How much internet do you use?
These days, with so many people working from home, a lot of us are using more internet than we’re used to. However, that isn’t the case for everyone, which you’ll want to keep in mind as you’re shopping for an internet plan.
If you work from home, stream lots of high-resolution videos or regularly play games online, you’ll likely need more internet speed than someone who casually goes on social media platforms and gets their TV from a cable provider.
Different activities require different internet capabilities.
