I imagine that this question will be on alot of your minds.
This is only for UOP halls, not Unite or any other form of housing.
Will I be able to download in Halls?
Will I be able to play online games?
To the first question.
P2P networking, ie, Kazaa, Limewire etc is completely blocked
Torrents are completely blocked.
Direct Downloading, Rapidshare, Megaupload etc...... is not. Plus, as of June (when I moved out) there were no download limits. And the internet runs at about 4-5mbps, when it's not busy.
Now obviously you'd only be using these services for *ahem* legal downloads anyway, so it shouldn't really matter >_>
Oh, and Spotify works fine.
To the subject of Gaming.
Games like CS on the PC, or WOW, generally are blocked. As is Xbox Live, PlayStation Home, and Wii Online.
Long and short of it is. Downloading it somewhat blocked. Online Gaming Completely.
