One account. Wherever

Registered user can use this wireless network (wherever available) through the single user account. Account’s administration is conducted by the home (establishing) institution.

The use of roaming is simple. User’s properly set device is connected automatically the moment the eudoram network is available. It is similar to the connection to foreign networks of mobile telephone providers through roaming. Hence the acronym: education roaming.

The service is free of charge for each user.
