Apparatus and associated methods relate to configuring a network remote from a user's personal network, with parameters governing the user's personal network, in response to user activity, and at a location and time based on the user activity. In an illustrative example, the network may be a Wi-Fi network. The user's personal network may be, for example, the user's home SSID for accessing the user's personal Wi-Fi access device. In some examples, the user activity may be a request for access to the remote network using the user's home SSID. The requested access may be provided at a time and location agreed to with an SSID portability provider. Various examples may advantageously provide portable access to the Internet, for example, using the user's home SSID already configured on the user's devices so that the user's devices can seamlessly and securely access the Internet via the remote network.
