"Land and Sea" Shaw WiFi Hotspot.

The Algoma Sailing Club has partnered with Shaw Cable Internet to help provide an outdoor public use "Land and Sea" Shaw WiFi Internet Hotspot.

This partnership allows for internet access for both the General Public and for the Algoma Sailing Club Members at the clubhouse and onboard their sailboats.

Having a Shaw WiFi hotspot located at the clubhouse for Belleview Park area helps to also provide a means for internet access for various community groups to allow them to broadcast their events live while at the park.

The Algoma Sailing Club will house and power the WiFi equipment which is owned and maintained by Shaw Cable. There are two WiFi Mesh Units are located on top the clubhouse with one pointing West towards the Park and the other pointing South towards TopSail Island. The Wifi Mesh units work somewhat like a cell phone network that as long as you are in range they automatically transfer your session to the next unit when you travel or move.

Folks can relax on picnic tables throughout the park, and or on their boats while surfing the internet. The actual distance and coverage depends on your equipment used (note: some laptops models transmit a stronger signal than others) and the amount of trees full of leaves that can reduce the overall signal strength.

Clubhouse disclaimer: When one is connected to any type of a WiFI network, there is a possibly that your sensitive information could be obtained, hence ensure that you have proper security software installed, sharing of files/folders turned off, and use of a firewall on your wifi internet connection.
