put Eduroam on Unilink busses

The busses already have free WiFi - simply add an Eduroam hotspot to the system. It'd mean that students could roam between campuses on the bus, never losing connection.

A couple of weeks have passed, and as such I'm going to close this You Make Change submission. I know that there are a bunch of conversations happening about Unilink over the coming months, however, so I'll keep an eye on things and will be back if there are any further updates. 

All the best, and thank you for using You Make Change!

Hello again! 

The University's Transport Team have come back to me and have confirmed that the current WiFi service is provided under contract by Go South Coast (who operate the Unilink service), and as such any addition would require the University to include it as part of their tender process. They believe that it'll therefore be difficult to implement in the short term, but I'm keen to see it considered if/when we go back out to tender. 

I'll leave the You Make Change open for a bit longer just to capture student opinion - make sure you keep sharing the link for upvoting and downvoting! 

All the best,

Thanks for getting in touch. I can see this being something which could be technically quite difficult to implement, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't ask the question! I'll pass it over to the team responsible for transport (and liaising with Unilink) at the University, and will let you know as soon as I have an update. 

I'll be back soon with an update - for now remember that voting is now live on this You Make Change so please share it with your friends!

All the best,
