If you'd like to use additional devices beyond what's included with your Internet plan, that's no problem. You'll just need to manually log in each time you're in a Shaw Go WiFi hotspot, or you can upgrade your Internet plan to a level that offers additional connected devices.

You may be unable to auto-authenticate to the network if you exceed the number of devices you are able to connect to your account.
