Tusculum College students living on campus will soon have the ability to upgrade their Internet connections to a broadband service provided by College Cable Services. The College Cable Services ResNet offering is coming this summer.
Under the agreement, College Cable Services will be offering an optional high speed broadband cable modem Internet service in all Tusculum College residence halls and campus houses in time for the fall semester.
The college Information Systems department says that basic Internet services that have previously been available in the residence halls will continue at no additional charge. However, the Information Systems department says that due to liability issues for the college, basic Internet service will be filtered to prevent abuse.
The ResNet offering by College Cable Services will provide the bandwidth necessary for students who play World of Warcraft, for example.
College Cable Services are in the process of adding an online signup option for students. All billing for the optional Internet service will be handled by College Cable Services, Inc. Additional information and details will be made available in the coming weeks.
