The University of Namibia rolls out wireless internet


Unam’s public relations officer Utaara Hoveka told The Namibian that all students who have laptop computers equipped with wireless modems would have internet connectivity on campus.

Hoveka said Telecom Namibia was installing the necessary cables last week.
The university is further installing vending machines where students can buy printing credit on their student cards.

In the past students queued up to buy credit, which is loaded onto their student cards to enable them to use printers in the copy centre.

According to Hoveka, after the installation of the wireless internet connectivity, students will be able to print from their laptops in their rooms through a local area network.
