UBC FatPort wireless network decommissioning May 20, 2011 at 00:00

As of May 20, 2011, UBC IT will decommission the FatPort wireless hotspot service that is currently available at all facilities covered by UBC wireless. Utilization of this service has declined over the last year due to the rollout of the ubcvisitor service and CWL guest accounts.

The service will continue to function until 00:00 on May 20, 2011 after which it will no longer be available and as such the wireless network currently broadcasted as ‘FatPort (Non-UBC user)’ will no longer show up when running a wireless scan from wireless devices.

Please contact the IT Service Centre at 604-822-2008 if you have any questions or concerns.
