Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS-'s Journal: Hope College's internet conn sucks 2

Journal by Clay Pigeon -TPF-VS-
I am sick as fuck of this school saying that it cant afford to have more than a 6 Mbaud connection. That is complete bullshit. 2k people sharing 6Mbaud is insane, and CIT won't even let me get a cable modem through comcast, which serves this area. The worst thing about the connection here is that 3Mbaud is reserved for SSL and browser traffic, which means that only 3Mbaud is general purpose. Of course most of that is eaten up by people using p2p applications, meaning that it is impossible to play even the least bandwidth hungry games (like ultima online).
