Difference between Shaw Go Wifi and Shaw Open

What is the difference between Shaw Go Wifi, Shaw Open and Shaw Passport?

Also,

I have been trying to use Shaw Go Wifi and Shaw Open with limited success. I have my device registered but instead of automatically logging in, it directs me to a device registering page when I try to use the internet. Even when I get logged in to a Go Wifi and my device shows good signal, the service provided through it is best described as lame. I normally try to use this feature through an apple Ipod. Maybe I am not using it correctly. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Ed

Shaw GoWiFi is a product, while ShawOpen is a SSID on Shaw's WiFi network.

Compare an automobile to the car-horn inside it.  They are different. To access the horn, you need to have an automobile. Access to ShawOpen would not be available if Shaw did not offer the GoWiFi technology.

Hey tsf,

Thank you for reaching out! I am sorry for the delay in response. The forums aren't monitored as closely as our other support channels. Shaw Go WiFi includes both the Shaw Open and Shaw Passpoint WiFi networks. You can find more details on the specifics of each network here. Are you noticing that you are unable to connect to the Internet in certain locations or are all locations you try having issues?

Cheers,

Hi Tony - not that I should expect more from Shaw and it's employees, still, it would have been useful to actually answer the question instead of inserting a useless/irrelevant link. How about you put some effort and answer the question? Do you think you can handle this as a Shaw Moderator/support rep? The main question remains unanswered - "Difference between Shaw Go Wifi and Shaw Open?"
