    How about wiifi zone in Kamfinsa / Highlands area we have been waiting since you opened up your shop

    We now have all the sales information about this Kombi Wifi, which is good for end users.

    But can we also get technical news about this, its unfortunate at the moment l cannt go and look it for myself.

    Information like:

    – how the device is connected to the kombi ie is it self powered

    – what is the connection range from the kombi can the device manage.

    – can it be taken home? also, whats deal is between Econet and Kombi owner

      Answering your questions using common sense:
      – the device is powered by a 12-volt adaptor powered by the vehicles battery

      – The wifi standards defines the signal power levels; generally wifi range is a few dozen meters

      – no, you can’t take it home and Econet won’t sell one to you for private use because it won’t be profitable. A family of 4 buying bundles of $1.50 each won’t cover the costs, unlike a kombi which typically carries 16 people every 20 minutes all day everyday. They have low margins and make it up on volume

      1. Macd Chip

        l was talking about when the kombi is parked for overnight!! Can you leave your valuables in that kombi overnight?

    Good questions @Macd Chip

    Ok from a technical perspective it is very likely that Econet is dishing hotspot enabled routers that have a data sim card on board.
    The router will broadcast and SSID and devices can connect via their network settings when it scans for available networks and via normal 2.4ghz frequency. The routers will likely have html pages sitting on the router’s file system to render a user interface. Its basic stuff really.
