Mobile Broadband Access

Faculty and staff who need high-speed Internet services while on the road can now pack broadband access in their pockets.  The new Verizon Wireless Broadband Access service, sponsored by ITS, provides clients with a high-speed connection to the Internet via their laptop computer in regions where Verizon cellular service is available. The service costs $5 per day (minimum three days, maximum 14 days). No additional data charges are applied.

Those interested in using the service can contact ITS Telecommunications at 443-1870 or e-mail TELECOM@LISTSERV.SYR.EDU to arrange to obtain a Mifi Mobile Hotspot.  Clients are required to complete the loaner request agreement form.  Program charges will appear on the departmental monthly telecommunications statement.

If the MiFi is not returned, a $300 replacement fee will be applied to the client’s departmental account.
