This afternoon we took our annual team photo, including our permanent staff and our seasonal casual staff who help with technical queries and run the Student Laptop and Mobile IT Clinics

ResNet Team Photo 2012

Well there’s been an awful lot of planning and preparation but we have finally launched ResNet Inclusive and perfectly on time too.  So from now, all UoB staff and students will be able to activate their ResNet connection as access is included in their accommodation rent; this includes any UoB person who’s just visiting.

Everyone will still need to activate their ResNet connection by visiting via either the socket in their room or connecting to the ResNet-Setup wireless signal and follow the on-screen instructions.

The ResNet Inclusive connection is ResNet Standard but if they feel this is not enough for their needs then they can upgrade to ResNet Max for a small fee.  For details please see ResNet Packages.

What does this mean for ResNet customers?  Well, the registration process is much simpler because there’s no need to go through the on-line payment process which is great news for our international students that don’t always have Credit/Debit Cards.  This means more people won’t have to visit the Computer Centre to pay for ResNet.

I’d like to thank everyone that’s worked hard behind the scenes to make all this has happen.  The ResNet team have had to work closely with the Accommodation Office, Finance, the Secretaries Office and two external partners (Unite and A2Dominion) and without their help, understanding and cooperation this would never have happened.
