A note on internet access in Pearsons: what’s up? IT explains

February 21, 2014

You may have experienced problems using the Internet in Pearsons the past few weeks; recent traffic in the building is exceeding the wireless network's capacity. The problem can only be fixed with new, upgraded equipment. IT is ordering that equipment, but there is not a quick, large-scale solution.

In the meantime, did you know you can help reduce these connectivity problems on a smaller scale? If you are using a device that can use a cellular connection to access the Internet, using a cell network will free up bandwidth for wireless-only devices.

If you want to stream video in Pearsons, IT strongly recommends using a wired connection.

Keep an eye out for further updates as soon as IT has a better time frame for equipment installation. If you experience network problems please contact ext. 2067 or put in a SchoolDude ticket.
