What is Inspire prepay?

Inspire Prepay is an Ethernet and Wireless service we supply in select locations which allows you to pay for your connection in advance for the period you select, with a limit speed feature just like standard home broadband connection.  At the end of this period you do not need to pay until you wish to use it again.  This is great if you are a visitor to the area, a student or do not use the internet regularly.

We currently have two services for prepaid internet:

  • Inspire Prepay
  • Student City

When you join with either of our services, you will be able to log in to either site.  See below for more connection details for both services.

What is a Student City connection?

Inspire Net provides both wired and wireless prepaid connections on campuses, military bases and similar environments.  You can connect to the Student City WiFi network when you are within range of a Student City hotspot or connect to a jackpoint in your hostel.
