    Hi all.

    Just wondering, what is the download speed for those staying in the Uni halls of residence?

    Are there any restrictions on the internet, any webpages blocked?

    Can you play video games online (i.e. ps3, xbox 360) and can you play MMOs ( i.e World of warcraft)?

    Thanks all

    Im in Unite halls, Alexandra works. Unite halls will no doubt have different rules, kind of, so can't speak for the rest of the 'normal' halls.

    Internet 'speed' is 2mb , my top download normal speed (despite randomly having spikes of like 500kb) is around 250bk/s using Steam, which is what the download speed should be using 2mb .
    Can play MMO's too here, no restrictions on anything like that.
    That said, you do randomly having high speeds like i have often downloaded whole films in like 20 minutes or something.

    We can play 360 online here, two flatmates do, guess you can for ps3 too.
