Did You Know
SSID (Server Set Identifier) is also referred to as a network name because it is the name that identifies a wireless (WiFi) network. When you set up your WiFi network, the SSID is the name that you give your network.

ShawPasspoint is a new SSID we've released as part of our ongoing efforts to provide an exceptional Shaw Go WiFi experience. “Passpoint” is an improved method for connecting to WiFi hotspots as part of the Wi-Fi Alliance Hotspot 2.0 Specification. This makes registering and connecting to Shaw Go WiFi easier than ever when using a supported device. See Key Points & Features below for a breakdown of what's new, and check out Frequently Asked Questions for more information and troubleshooting tips.
As a Shaw Internet customer, you can connect to Shaw Go WiFi with as many devices as you like, but the number of devices that can connect automatically is determined by your current Internet plan. Once you register your devices for Shaw Go WiFi, they will automatically connect every time you enter a hotspot. You may be unable to auto-authenticate to the network if you exceed the number of devices you are able to connect to your account.
Shaw Go WiFi Device Limits
If you'd like to use additional devices beyond what's included with your Internet plan, that's no problem. You'll just need to manually log in each time you're in a Shaw Go WiFi hotspot or you can also upgrade your plan.
