[EF22] Estrel wifi
« on: 24.07.2016, 15:10:23 »

I haven't seen it asked anywhere but I was wondering how much of the venue is covered by wifi since my roaming data plan for Germany is rather weak.
I assume my room (in the Estrel) will be covered and anyone else's room who I visit but what about the con space?

The general wifi is provided by the Estrel and should be also 'visible' in the lobby etc.
But the chances of successfully using it… it is a mixed bag. The coverage is not the issue… the 2500 nerds with each 3-6 wifi-enabled devices on them is!

So your link quality might vary massively and you will have no fun using the wifi, I can tell you! I very much recommend finding yourself a friend with a good data plan and only get your wifi-dosis when around this friend.

General security advice: If you use the Esterl Wifi or *especially* when you use some other open Wifi, use a VPN or make at least sure you fetch your mail, messages or websites via TLS secured connections.

Best wishes,
