Welcome to the ZACR History of the Internet in South Africa!

This portal will give you access to the documented history of how the Internet was introduced to South Africa, video interviews with many of the people who were closely involved in the implementation and growth of the Internet in this country and images of interesting artefacts and other items that are part of the story.

The construction of the portal is a collaboration between ZACR, the LINK Centre and the Joburg Centre for Software Engineering (both at the University of Witwatersrand). Construction is underway.
