Do you have a phone line in your room? If not they'll need to install one which is £120 connection fee, not sure how much you'd pay for the physical line to be put in though.

Have you asked if you'd be allowed to have it installed?

Yep. Go to BT and order it. Nothing free in this world. You want it, get it and pay for it!

The one off fee includes getting the NTE within 3 metres off the entry point, which in this case would be the chaps room. You have to ask though is it worth the cost with a contract included for the relatively small amount of time you will be spending there.

Depends what course he's on the chaps in 3 sqn are there for at least 14 months so it would be worth it, ask in the block I've seen BT hubs in other rooms.

Minimum 12 month contract and if you cancel early, you get financially HAMMERED by BT. Robbing fuckers!

Most of the bunks in Celle had it... pretty sure a few bunks in Matafar and Herford had it too.

If you are on a corridor with a connection already it could be cheaper.

Are you fucking serious? Broadband? Get out off camp and go on the piss. Fucking broadband. Next you'll be telling us you have a duvet, dont get shouted out, asked politely to do something, cuddle upto a teddy when the nasty Cpl shouts at you. Unless you are using it for nefarious purposes ie hardcore animal porn continental stylee. In which case invoke the Human Rights Act-it is every perverts right to have access to t'internet for porn.

Wouldn't bother with it in phase 2 just get a dongle. I have always found wifinty to be alright.
We are currently getting .5 of a mb and i have the £25.99 which is 10Mb ! its bone plus it won't play three xbox's in my room but does let one on! it says MTU fault which is according to wifinity the xbox's fault and they have reported it to them !!

Vodafone gets good signal down there... like, 3GS when nobody else can even get a text message in.

Not long ago at DCCIS I had a decent e-mail connection over the iPhone tethered to a laptop, then an xBox 360 hooked up to the laptop through internet sharing on the laptop. (basically laptop can take an internet connection from one source and send it down another. so at blandford I took internet from USB and sent it down ethernet to the 360, at home i take internet from the wifi and send it down ethernet to the 360. either works).

yes tethering costs extra money but if you give them a yell-a-gram down the phone and tell them you'll leave if they don't give you free tethering on your contract, as O2 do, you'll fucking well do that; they'll bolt it on no problem. After all, tethering doesn't cost THEM (vodafone, not THEM) anything, you're on an unlimited data plan already and it doesn't cost anything to send it down a USB. tethering charges is just Voda screwing an extra few quid out of people, 95% of whom won't argue the toss.

Because it costs significantly more to install the phoneline than the charge given to the customer.

It is not the fault of the Xbox, it is their network which is incapable of handling multiple devices.
