Certificate based WiFi authentication on Model 3?

I use Spectrum cable for my Internet and I have their certificate based authentication installed on my iPhone and Apple Watch so my devices automatically use their access points when I am in range and where I live and work they are everywhere.

At work I use certificate based authentication + username and password for my iPhone.

Can the Model 3 do this? I cannot see anything other than username and password. I thought this was discussed before but could not find it in the 3 forum anywhere.

Yes and I have a wonderful UniFi setup at home. But with the new features it would be nice to have WiFi at a lot of places I often visit.

Look at all the WiFi access points I have access to in Cincinnati and Columbus.

We aren't talking about all the other spots are we? Are you suggesting that Charter requires cert access all over the place?
You could always use a bridge Wi-Fi, get the cert on one side and then you connect to the other.
