Wi-Fi in Accommodation

I was talking to Michael yesterday, and we decided (I think I got this right) that university was really pretty cool because at times we actually get a say in the way things work. Today, that was verified as I got this reply back from the college administrator:

WiFi in Accommodation

I was all ready to write this post dripping with praise for the college, and the university and whatever, except I just got another reply explaining that we don’t have Wi-Fi because of the prohibitive cost. Really, “prohibitive cost”?

Campus Wi-Fi

The pink is where there’s currently Wi-Fi available on campus. The blue is where I asked for it. How is that more expensive to the point where it’s not possible?

Part of me is tempted to try and do something with this (meetings, petitions, voting?) but another part of me thinks it isn’t important enough to waste time on.

Hmm, as nice as that map looks, we don’t have wifi in most of James… At some point I might run some GPS-based wifi log software and see where wifi actually exists…
