It is a joke to say that due to the low cost of the school we are not able to have internet gaming access. This school is a state school which means 2/3 of our tuition is paid by taxpayers. All State college excluding Universities have roughly the same tuition rate with the difference being within 100 dollars. To say that we cannot afford the bandwidth is completely false. I have been to and visited many state schools (ie. Potsdam, Plattsburgh, UB, Albany, Brockport) and they all have internet access for their online games. It may not be a top of the line connection but it is at least a connection. Buffalo State is a commuter college and then a dorming college. While you would not realize this due to the parking situation, just take a tour of any of the substandard student housing and you will see what I mean. ResLife at this school is a joke, they lose mail (books especially) and tell you whatever you want to hear to get you out of the building (send your mac address and youll have xbox live!!!). Many rooms are falling apart and require repairs... put in a work order and they'll send someone to fix it in 10 weeks, who cares if the roof is leaking or the toilet is falling out of the wall and the plumbing doesn't work. There is a point we must all demand at least an average living capacity. Hopefully Buff State checks these boards and uses it in their evaluations of departments... if they even evaluate.

I totally agree with you!! the reshalls are a joke for the amount of money being paid. as for the bandwidth issues.. what i said was a quote from the associate director of reslife curtis brickhouse. the answer made sense to me but was unaware other state schools lacked this problem.. honestly though.. im not surprised.. its buff state.. the last school to do anything.

your own connection meaning what? wireless broadband? (verizon or att etc..) if so then yea you can do that cause it doesnt affect the college.. other than that im gonna give you a preemptive no... but what did you have in mind?

I am pretty sure you are not even allowed to bring your own wireless connection because if a lot of people did, it would make the internet really slow for everyone.

My biggest suggestion to anybody wanting to play games online is to live off-campus. I will be moving off campus with a friend of mine and we are looking for 1-2 roommates. Single bedrooms twice the size as on campus (you can double up with a friend if you want to pay even less) and a high speed internet connection. The cost is $450 a person with utilities included or $360 dollars a person if you want to double with someone. The rooms are way larger than on campus and can accomodate two people easily. Like I said, if you want to play games online than you cant live on campus. If you are interested send me an email at seyboljp01@mail.buffalostate.edu

Correct, you are not allowed to bring your own wireless router.

Having your own wireless connection would not affect anyone else, the rule is that you must use the campus provided internet so that they can monitor what you do.

Well, without a doubt there is, or shortly will be, 4G coverage in Buffalo. I KNOW that there are people that use 3G to game, but I am more comfortable with 4G. If 2 or 3 GB really is not enough then the standard 5GB plans that Verizon has would be enough for sure. I am not up there yet so I am really unable to test this out. If anyone up there wants to play for an hour or even half an hour on their cell connections and let us know the amount of data used, I would appreciate it.


True 4G doesn't even exist btw, you know that right? It's marginally faster but at a speed that's virtually unnoticeable. Google 'true 4G'

So true. The 4g we have right now isn't so much a an actual 4g network, but still a late 3g/pre-cursor 4g, if that makes any sense at all. The 4g that is envisioned to be as fast as home broadband, but today's current 4g falls short of this speed connection (100Mbps to 1Gbps range) which would be roughly ten times faster the average 3G network.

You know what I meant.

If only legal filesharing was going on I don't think it would present a bandwidth problem.

Games are all time favorite. Whenever I am tired then I play games on playstation 3 and every Sunday I play different games with my friends. Call of Duty and WWE are mine favorite games. Recently I purchased latest version of WWE and feel like I play real.
