    Hi all.


    First of all, I know there is an internet speed question, but I have other questions.

    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

    This should answer a bit, however posting this in the earlier hours when less people are on.



    I play World of Warcraft myself and use a 360, Wow you get lag spikes every so often (these are quite bad but a quick restart or waiting a minute or so will resolve it) and the 360 is fine, playing Cod online never lags.

    See the other thread for speeds. I got 70mbp/s

    WoW works fine, the odd bit of lag. XBox works fine too

    The Brunel Connect Service advises you if theres something dodgy but it doesn't block it. A page just come up going OMG PORN LOL.
