    I'm moving back into msv this year for a cheap alternative to housing...

    I realise in each room there is a phone port with a more or less premium rate number. i have recently found out though, i can get a sweet deal on O2 home broadband for cheaper than student village can offer me, but will mean i need a phone plug to use it in. will the phone jack in the room be sufficiant for this?

    As far as I know, you can only use the phone line/internet companies that they have. You could try a service that gives you a dongle, maybe, but I just put up with their internet and have a mobile contract.

    You can't set up your own internet in MSV north. Pretty sure it's the same in most halls. If you could, why would people shell out the £300 odd quid for MSV's own sub par internet?
