- A limited number of users can access the service simultaneously. If the maximum number of users is already on the network, you will not be able to connect.
- Internet speed depends on the time of day, the number of people using the network, and the types of activity it's being used for.
- If you're unable to connect or finding the service very slow, moving to a different (less busy) area of the building may help.
