I know its been asked a million times but I cant find any definitive answers when I search... I'm gonna be living in the West side, 3rd floor, does anyone know for sure whether or not I'll be able to get wireless internet connection in my room?

need to get a laptop you see and dont know whether to look into getting mobile broadband if the wifi in my room is no good cause I cant do without internet!

In some of the pictures on Facebook, people were sitting in the corridors with their laptop to try and get a connection, I imagine. :p:
Its better than nothing, I guess. :yep:

At the beginning of last year the connection was awful. Loads of people had to sit in the corridor to get a tiny, slow connection.

However, mid way through the first term there was a complete internet renovation and a lot more wifi points were put throughout the corridors. The speed is actually pretty good (although it can get a little slower in the evenings) and the signal rarely falls.

My room was right outside a wifi point, but even down the corridor it still was OK.
