Universities, And Their High Speed Internet Offers

August 23rd, 2013

Many major universities in this country have become very interested in getting high speed Internet access and then also making it available to their surrounding communities. But why are these colleges interested in sharing their connections? One proven theory is that certain businesses work well when they are located close to large institutes of learning.

This is especially true with high-tech businesses, which benefit most often from the faster Internet connections. To this end, some schools are designing infrastructure that will allow for connection speeds that may be up to one thousand times faster than anything residential providers can currently offer. It is hoped that the availability of these super-high speed connections will attract technical businesses that will set up shop near university and college campuses. But the residents of the community can also count themselves lucky to be living so near to a source of high speed internet connectivity.
