I have a Shaw internet account. My email is gmail. I have registered my Samsung Chromebook. Can I now access Shaw WiFi ? How close do I have to be to a hotspot ?
In order to use Shaw Go Wifi, you would need to have an @shaw.ca email address, which you can create through the Customer Centre. You don't need to use it if you already use your Gmail address, but it's required in order to use the service.
The range on Hot Spots can vary, but you can expect good connectivity within 50m-75m; in many cases 100m or more. There's no exact figure really as you've got trees, the topography of the area, buildings, interference from a number of other sources, etc...
Hope this helps,
