Yesterday at noon, Apple released IOS 7 for download to IOS devices. The automated download of IOS devices on the SHSU network caused the network to be saturated and access to external websites was very slow. In order to ensure academic instruction and institutional business is not adversely impacted, we have restricted access to the Apple App Store on campus wireless during business hours. We will continue to monitor the bandwidth and restore access to the Apple App Store after business hours for the rest of the week. Once we are confident that utilization rates have decreased to an acceptable level, we will restore access during business hours as well.
