Mweb switches Wi-Fi users to AlwaysOn

Wednesday 25 March 2015 | 09:34 CET | News
South African ISP Mweb has shut down its Wi-Fi service and is directing users to connect to AlwaysOn instead, MyBroadband reported. It said the closure comes as a surprise because Mweb was meant to retain its Wi-Fi service after Dimension Data company Internet Solutions agreed last year to buy Mweb Business and Mweb's Optinet Service and Network Divisions. Mweb retained its consumer ISP business, though its bandwidth contracts transferred to Internet Solutions.
