Can I use an ADSL or cable modem in my residence?

No. Most bedrooms do not have telephone or cable points and therefore ADSL / cable (or dial-up!) modems cannot be used. Where telephone points are provided, these are either connected to the University’s digital exchange, through which modems cannot operate; or require the use of a 'calling card' to use, which would make use of a modem extremely expensive.
