Hi @orionwifi Beta members… all 166 (so far) of you!
Thanks for your patience as I’ve been working through the Beta requests. It’s exciting to see this much interest in the Beta!
The requests to join keep rolling in, and I’ll keep working on them, so if you haven’t heard from me yet, please don’t despair. Everyone who requested to participate in the Beta prior to 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, 10/25/20 (today) has been answered. I’ll also follow up again early in the week once engineering has the feature enabled for your phones.
So, you’re probably wondering… what are we doing here?!
Some of you have already been searching the internet to see what you can learn about Orion WiFi. So tell us, what did you learn?
If you have time, listen to the podcast shared in our Announcement topic:
What questions do you have?
Don’t feel limited to asking questions, though. Maybe you’ve done a bit more reading or have some background that helps you understand this concept. If someone asks a question and you can answer it, go right ahead!
The @orionwifiteam has offered to do a webinar for our Orion WiFi Beta members, and we’ll use the questions you bring up here to frame the information that’s shared in the webinar. If you already understand it perfectly, we’ll know we don’t need a webinar!
Your first question is probably, "where can I try it out?!"
I’ll be sharing information about the location of the current Orion WiFi sites sometime next week, so there’s no need to make that one of your questions! We do ask that you keep that information private, as the participating venues will want to make their own public announcements concerning their participation, on their own schedules.
