SOWN: The Southampton Open Wireless Network


SOWN (the Southampton Open Wireless Network) is a project which originally aims to build free-to-use wireless mesh networks in Southampton. It has since evolved to deploy wireless 'home nodes' in staff or student accommodation, with a view to providing innovative network services. It also provides network connectivity in many outdoor areas around campus not yet covered by eduroam.

SOWN is being developed and operated by SUWS (the Southampton University Wireless Society).
