UTS has finalized its plans to upgrade campus Wi-Fi in several high-priority areas. The $100,000 pilot project will occur gradually over the next few months, and is expected to be finished by May of this year. The project was first announced in November.

A total of 90 Wi-Fi access points will be either upgraded or added to 12 buildings on campus.

According to John Kearney, chief information officer with UTS, the process of expanding Wi-Fi should be “invisible” but “in some cases there may be momentary pauses in service.”

Classrooms, conference rooms and lounges have been identified as top priority areas.
