[quote author=Lovechild link=board=14;threadid=8228;start=0#msg75115 date=1071105685]Us students are prone to getting internet connection as a part of our dorm rooms - it's not free but included in the rent.. dirty cheap.[/quote]

And sometimes you get what you pay for. The internet here is 10KB/s when good, 2KB/s when bad, 400B/s when really bad.

Well that is for everyone else. Me and my friends, we get the 300KB/s we need! (we're on the same network as the rest of the school, and the rest of the school [not dorms] has fast internet, ssh tunnels are your friend)
