Dear colleagues and students,
HKU Open WiFi is a WiFi service provided for use by visitors on campus. This WiFi service is for quick and immediate network access on campus within a limited bandwidth capacity. Visitors can use it without login and prior configuration of their mobile devices.
The University is supporting the HKSAR Government’s "City-wide Wi-Fi for the Public and Visitors" initiative as set out in the "2014 Digital 21 Strategy". The objectives of this initiative are
- to make it easier for the public and visitors to find and use the free Wi-Fi services in Hong Kong;
- to stimulate the development of public Wi-Fi in Hong Kong; and
- to further advance Hong Kong's position as a highly connected city in the world.
For further details on Wi-Fi.HK service, please visit the Wi-Fi.HK website.
To support this initiative, ITS will convert the HKU Open WiFi service into Wi-Fi.HK service. The major change arising from this conversion is that the WiFi SSID (Service Set Identifier) for use by visitors on campus will be changed from "HKU Open WiFi" to "Wi-Fi.HK via HKU" starting from 8:00 am on 1 December 2014 (Monday).
For enquiries on the above, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your attention.
