Direct internet access in residence halls is three fourths complete

The university's $1.6 million project to provide all 4,000 residence hall rooms on the Athens campus direct cable access to the Internet and campus computer network sy stem is three fourths complete and should be finished by September, officials say. Once complete, the ResNet project will give on-campus residents 24-hour access to Internet and network services at a rate about 175 times faster than today's fastest modems, which rely on telephone lines to provide access. NetOhio, a similar project to wire offices, classrooms and computer labs, is expected to be finished by late June.
