About WISH

WISH (Wireless Internet Services & Hardware) Networks is a telecommunications operator offering networking services. WISH Networks' main goal is to provide this connectivity in the lowest cost, fastest and most user-friendly means possible.

WISH is a proudly South African company, which has been operating a wireless network in Stellenbosch since 2006 with a business model focused on using wireless technologies for affordable last mile access to fiber infrastructure.

WISH Networks is a fully licensed Internet Service Provider, able to provide electronic networking services nationwide, and build our own backbone network in the Cape Winelands and Cape Town Municipalities. Our main market segment has always been high density Wi-Fi installations, with a focus on student housing, and we have a wide range of offerings tailored to this market.

To date, the company has installed over 4000 wireless access points and laid hundreds of kilometres of networking cable in order to offer a fast, cost-effective means of access to a range of innovative broadband services.
