Eduroam to Replace GTwifi Later this Summer
Campus W-Fi users are encouraged to select eduroam as their new Wi-Fi service as plans are underway to sunset GTwifi later this summer.
While you can still choose GTwifi as your network of choice for now, there are many benefits to switching over to eduroam today – namely, the new eduroam Wi-Fi service can be used when visiting another eduroam participating institution rather than trying to connect to their Wi-Fi service. Equally, someone visiting Georgia Tech who h as configured their Wi-Fi to eduroam can use their own institution’s Wi-Fi service.
Do I need to do anything to move to Eduroam?
It is important that only one Tech network is configured on any device at any one time, so you may want to consider switching to eduroam to avoid interruptions when GTwifi is decommissioned this summer. Information on how to make the switch to eduroam is available on the LAWN Website at http://lawn.gatech.edu/help/eduroam.
