This name change will not impact the service or behavior of Alamo Colleges' open wireless network. If you currently
have a wireless device that connects to "ACCD_Unsecured_Guest" wireless network you will need to reconfigure your device to
the new wireless network name of "ALAMO_Guest". This name change took place on August 8, 2014.
