    According to the guy I asked on a visit day earlier this year, it's really fast.

    Although we both come from the same place and the speed here isn't too good so maybe we just have low expectations.

    You're going to uni? I'm just curious, do they have Ethernet ports at the dorms?

    I'm going in September, yes.

    It looked like they do, but I'm not entirely sure.

    I'm thinking of using my own router to isolate my Chromecast from the network. I don't want people streaming porn onto it. Lol.


    I'm pretty sure XXX sites are blocked.

    Are you allowed to bring routers?

    And I doubt ANY unis, unless they are ran by nuns, would block porn sites. I mean c'mon!? Surely not?

    I know my collage filters a lot of sites, even gaming ones. And porn.

    And can Chromecast hook on the network?

    College is different. You have no reason to be looking at porn sites at college. You're living at uni and are all adults. Your uni will not block porn.
