Pagers

 

Introduction

Pager service at the UW has been arranged through a contract between the UW Information Technology Service Center and a local provider, and is available at a reduced rate to all UW faculty and staff. Alpha-numeric, digital, and voice pagers are available, and user budgets are billed a monthly fee for pager rental and service.
