    Does anyone know of anybody who hooked up there own broadband with a regular ISP because Keycom is a sham. They charge £15 per month with a £20 connection fee for 2MB of broadband that isn't wireless. Compare this with a typical outside ISP say O2, They are £9.79 a month for wireless broadband No connection fee, 10MB. Theyre just taking students for a ride. I emailed Sanctuary housing and they said you have to go with KeyCom, but can you not just get an outside modem and have your own on the sly?
