We're pleased to announce that as of today, Google hosted services are FREE when you access them on Lightwire at the University of Waikato. This means you get free access to Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar and much more as long as you're logged in to Lightwire at the University of Waikato.

We've worked with the University to hook Lightwire up to KAREN, the Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network. Google provides high-speed access to their services over KAREN which means you'll get free access as long as Google continues to advertise their services to KAREN.

We'll let you know if Google changes the way they provide services over KAREN or if our arrangement with the University changes. Until then you can enjoy free and fast access to Google services on Lightwire at the University of Waikato.
