As a Shaw Internet customer, you have free access to the Shaw Go WiFi network of thousands of hotspots.

 

Depending on your Internet service with Shaw, you can register your device(s) to auto-connect between 3 and 10 devices. You can learn more in the Shaw Go WiFi FAQs at https://www.shaw.ca/wifi/faq/

 

Once connected, you will not need to configure your device again. As registered devices will automatically connect, My Account offers the ability to view and manage your Shaw Go Wifi registered devices.
