Photo of a speedometerPhase 1 of the campus-wide upgrade to 100 Mb connections has been accomplished as of the target date of July 1.

Twenty-six buildings have 100 Mb connections to the NIU network. These buildings had the infrastructure required for 100 Mb connectivity already in place.

Sixteen more buildings will be upgraded in Phase 2, which has a target date of Sept. 1. They require minor infrastructure upgrades to have 100 Mb connectivity.

Buildings in Phases 3 and 4 need progressively more work and are to be completed by Jan. 1, 2014, and July 1, 2014, respectively.

The cost to upgrade department labs to 100 Mb connections has been reduced to $5.50 per port. Email NIUTel to request your lab upgrade at [email protected].
