I am applying to staffs and wonder if i can pay for my own internet connection like some other halls? if not i may go private accommodation, a good internet connection is a massive part of my learning and standard speeds just wont work after all the drinking you don't want the internet slowing down your only time to work.

Nah, they only really monitor you if you hog the bandwidth, though personally I've found no need to torrent any thing.

he probably got done for the torrenting then and is just lying to you to save face.
The connectify hotspot has it's own MAC address, or the IT guys say he got done for having a wireless router, instead of saying he got done for torrenting because it's easier paperwork
You won't get wireless in the halls so you can't use your mobile phone in the halls via wifi (though you can outside halls)

Hmmm....this worries me now. Is the internet connection there really that bad? I mean I don't really want it to get in the way of my work or just general internet surfing....
Also, when I'm at home I nearly always have my pc/laptop on whilst on the xbox at the same time, plus sometimes I have my phone connected to the internet too. Therefore meaning that I sometimes use a max of 3 devices at a time. It's usually just the two but I guess I'll just have to get used to using one at a time then. Do most universities only allow one device at a time and don't allow wireless within accomodation? How come they don't allow wireless anyway? Is it because they might find it harder to monitor what we're doing on the internet? Do atleast the libraries and other working areas have wireless so I could just go there to do work with my laptop?
So many questions... xD
The internet is not that bad tbf, and you can still do with your laptop and your xbox
