Totally not worth three years of your life for a possible improvement.

Wow, us Hughes people have to pay for internet use over 2 gigabytes per month. Who uses less than two gigabytes per month?

Anyone still looking for a roommate/apartment? I'm a bit of a late admit and after the hectic rush to get in my deposit, fin aid forms, and health forms, I realize that I really need to get started on living arrangements.

I'm male, in my 20s, relaxed, non-smoker with no pets. I have no really strict preferences (male or female, doesn't matter, age doesn't matter much), but you must be reliable with the rent and can't be a drama queen. Also, the apartment should be a place conducive to studying, so no big parties every week.

I think at about 20 cents a gig so that's not too bad. The worst was when I studied at The London School of Economics and if you went over 6 gigabytes in a week they would kick you off the internet for a week.

entirely computer illiterate - how big is 2 gigabytes per month? is that only 5 emails/day stingy or as long as you only upload documents you're fine?

Wow. I am absolutely addicted to Netflix Watch Instantly/other media streaming sites. That would be disastrous for me! Really glad I decided to live off-campus.

As long as you stuck to internet browsing, uploading/downloading documents, and just a few Youtube videos a week, you'd make it. :roll:

Any online gaming, serious media streaming (one Netflix movie can involve between 1-2GB of data) and especially file-sharing would tip you over the limit.

I had to monitor my internet use pretty closely in London. Normal internet use and about 1 or 2 hours of internet t.v. a day would put you at about 5 gigs a week so 20 for the month.

Emails and documents are a pretty insignificanrt source of internet use, it's video use that will take up a ton of room.

I forget but I think downloading a world cup game is about 2 gigs

Not to harp on it, but yet another reason to live out of Hughes.

Don't think so...

http://newstudents.cornell.edu/first-year/computing.html
http://www.cit.cornell.edu/services/resnet/fees/index.cfm

As best as I can figure out, whether you use a wired connection in your room or Cornell's "RedRover WiFi" on campus, you're subject to "Network Usage Based Billing."

That second link seems to say you get 15 GB per month, and are billed per MB beyond that.

*shrug* Ask IT.

Correct.
For August 2009 and September 2009, the NUBB billing model was modified as follows:
Effective August 2009, the student billing threshold was changed from 10 GB to 15 GB.
Effective September 2009, NUBB was changed to a tiered billing model. For the tiered billing rate, usage which surpasses the NUBB billing threshold is billed at $0.0015 per Megabyte (unchanged from the previous rate) for usage up to 500 Gigabytes (inclusive) and additional usage beyond 500 Gigabytes is now billed at $0.0010 per Megabyte. The tiered billing changes apply to both students and non-students.
Also effective September 2009, a monthly billing cap of $1000 is also now in effect for all NUBB charges (for both students and non-students).


The 2GB cap was an old one and still appears on some documents (including some form documents we see in the housing process), but all those documents have a date earlier than the above, so they just have not been updated.

So the cap is 15GB before you start paying. You get ~47 GB total before you start paying more than the average costs for internet per month. http://www.cit.cornell.edu/cms/services ... q.cfm#2_27

And No, I am not happy about it. :evil: But I'll deal.

How much internet would an online video game for xbox360 use? I'm trying to decide if it's worth bringing up my 360.

Not much. Games are only sending small packets of deltas. Not much data is really needed to keep everyone in sync with everyone else.

Video and digital purchases are the only real bandwidth heavy activities at the current time.

Edit: Averages i have seen for online shooter play is 35Mb per hour. Don't know if that is in bytes or bits.

Hey guys,

I am a rising 2L looking to hand over the lease on a studio at 516 Stewart Avenue- $510/month, furnished, with utilities included (except for internet). It is probably not good for people who like to cook since it only has a kitchenette. It's about a 7 minute uphill walk to the law school, a few doors down from an Ithaca Car Share Vehicle, and five minutes from Noyes Rec Center. Quiet building with mostly grad students. Send me a PM for pictures or if you have questions. I also have a ton of supplements that you can keep (or that I can throw away/donate if you don't want them).

Hi!

I sent you a PM (two, actually) expressing interest, but they all seem to get stuck in my outbox, and so I assume they weren't actually sent. Did you somehow get them?

Adamat, they don't move to Sent until the next time the recipient logs in. That way you can still edit them and they'll never see the pre-edited version. :P

Oooh. I didn't realize that. I still have a PM in my outbox from weeks ago, since (I just checked) the recipient never logged back in after their first/only post.

Weird. Anyway, thanks for clarifying this. And now I look weird for having sent two PMs and made a reply on the forums within a 5 minute time span.
