As we announced, ITS replaced the wireless network access points (APs) to provide more robust coverage in SC. All of the new APs have been installed as of 7/31/14, some in different places than the ones they replaced, and many APs have been added. ITS would like feedback on how well the new APs are working. ITS can make configuration changes, move or add APs, and make other adjustment if they know where coverage is weak or inconsistent.
