Durham University Has The Best Campus Wi-Fi Apparently

How often do you find yourself complaining about the Wi-Fi at your university?

For students, having access to fast and reliable campus Wi-Fi is about as essential as having access to clean water and a functioning boiler. After all, mobile data doesn’t come cheap, and you never know when you might need to do an emergency Wikipedia search before that seminar you haven’t prepared for, or a hasty review of all those photos you’ve just been tagged in before anyone can see them.

Recent research by facilities management company Sodexo found that 79% of UK students consider Wi-Fi to be the most important service in their university environment, and yet, if you are yourself a student, you’ll know that it can also be one of their biggest gripes.

We’ve all been let down by the campus Wi-Fi at one point or another, be it a one-off nightmare of an incident just when you really needed to download your essay, or a day-in-day out struggle to get your device to connect.
