Can I use more than one device?

Yes, although you’ll need to register both devices.

Can I get my Webmail like Gmail?

Yes, you can access Webmail sites like Hotmail, Yahoo Mail and Gmail.

Can I use a VPN?

Yes, if you’re connecting to the internet through your own laptop we’d recommend using a VPN client for secure access to company intranets and mail servers. Check that your company VPN supports NAT traversal and allows multiple connections from a single IP address. Please log in through the portal page before you use your VPN.

What speeds can I expect?

We can’t guarantee speeds but we aim to offer around 1MBs. Many things can affect internet data speeds.

The access speed is really slow?

If the access speed is slow, you’re probably in a poor signal area. Try moving closer to the access point. Check your wireless icon. It’ll have some method of detecting signal strength which will allow you to move around until you’re in a good signal strength area. 

Are there any data usage limits?

The Fair Usage Policy is up to 20GB per month.

Why are some sites blocked and I cannot gain access to them?

WiFi SPARK block certain categories such as P2P file sharing. If you feel that a site is incorrectly blocked, please let us know so that we can investigate.
