It goes down a lot. Half a dozen times from what I know The network has nothing to do with the university, they are simply contracted to provide internet access. Of course you could invest in a better service but what no one seems to understand is that it's a bad impression of the uni if everyone comes to live on campus and are told "Yeah the internet is shit, you should invest in something else". I say this as a view expressed by me and my fellow residents and students and I can't exactly go tell everyone to buy a 3G plan. For most students that is inconvenient and more expensive. The speeds are not the only issue and that seems to be the only thing everyone is extracting from my posts. The service offered is slow, inconsistent and unreliable, and the service provider doesn't seem to care. That's what I'm trying to get at here. People don't because you don't get the quota. I've been up at 5am and it's still just as slow.
